forum.joomla.org very slow/timeouts/HTTP 500: December 2017

Postby sozzled » Sat Dec 02, 2017 10:13 pm

I've noticed that over the past 24-48 hours the browser response from the forum site has become extremely erratic to the point where we might be concerned that there's some kind of DoS in effect. Quite apart from the current weather situation in SE Australia—I note that I don't have any other internet connectivity problems with other websites that I routinely visit—I'm finding it increasingly difficult to refresh pages here, post messages on the forum and I'm not getting notification of updates to the topics that I'm subscribed to; my email address (used here) is working fine with other places where I use it in a similar way.

Known problem? Hmmm? :pop ???

It's the same in Norway, Europe.
Most requests just time out.

Thanks, guys, for confirming that this seems to be a world-wide phenomenon. I'm still not receiving emails from subscribed topics and I'm still experiencing timeouts.

I hope someone is looking into the matter. 8)

I can report that there's been a world of improvement in the past 6-12 hours. Thanks. :)

Rochen and our CDN provider were working on a fix for the forum's issues specifically yesterday, doing so caused a short outage on the other .org properties but once that fix was in place things have generally been much more stable (here on the forum and the other sites as well).

Hi,

Can you try again, and see if it has improved now. It looks better from here now. But keep us updated if you continue to have major issues.

Kind Regards

Ok I found all pages a little slower than normal and speedtest was slow so rebooted my laptop rather than 'shut down' (I sometimes do that if I have been running localhost). On reboot the laptop said configuring windows don't turn off etc. Forum appears fast and stable here now.
