Previously the forum didn't work on my phone. Earlier this morning I started being able to browse and post. Before it wouldn't even load (on my phone).

Speed has always been good here, however...

I was using a http://www.rawpaleoforum.com link, and got this:
"If you feel you have reached this page in error, please contact the web site owner:
webmaster@rawpaleoforum.com
It may be possible to restore access to this site by following these instructions for clearing your dns cache."
3 browsers and torbrowser all got the same result.


So I made a new link to http://www.rawpaleodietforum.com and all is well.

Right someone should probably update all the places it says www.rawpaleoforum.com to www.rawpaleodietforum.com

Same as William for me.
Cause and effect are distant in time and space in complex systems, while at the same time there’s a tendency to look for causes near the events sought to be explained. Time delays in feedback in systems result in the condition where the long-run response of a system to an action is often different from its short-run response. — Ronald J. Ziegler

faster for me too.  I noticed that when I used to try and post things the website would sometimes time out before they registered with the site.  that's not an issue anymore.  thanks for all your work and keeping the site updated GS

The shared host server which was supposed to be fast became buggy when they moved.
Sigh.
Moved us back to my 2 dedicated servers which means we are back at full power.
Hope back to this dedicated machine works best.

Great stuff. I had been unable to access rawpaleoforum for a few hours a day or two ago, so I'm glad it's being sorted. Thanks, GS, for all your efforts.

I just moved web servers again.  This time not using webmin php-fcgi.  This is using good old php module.  Let's see if it runs faster.  Database server is the same.

Changed the time period showing who was online for the past 60 minutes instead of 1440 minutes.  This is supposed to speed up our forum.

http://www.rawpaleodietforum.com/who/ shows we have lots of guests reading and not registering.

Finally found out how to turn on compression and the php cache function of this new web server.
We should be faster now.

Again I had to adjust something.
We were running out of memory.
Feedback please.
Now it seems to be running faster again.

We were flaky for a day or two because someone sent an attack specifically to the front page of www.rawpaleodietforum.com , some Chinese IP. 
Offending IP was 123.151.148.201.  DOS http type every second or more.

Feedback: yes, flaky for a few days, as in "server not responding, try later."

That's not happening today.

There have been a few times trying to access from my phone that it said "server not available"

Most slowness on my phone is from my phone haha

On my computer, things seem smooth like any other site.

i seem to experience multiple "problems", whether with page loading speeds, site accessibility, or functions on a fairly regular basis.

i tend to blame the older computer, my reluctance to update my browser, or the public access dsl web connection i use.  if you say the server is faster, since it is most likely not the slowest part of the equation...  i guess i believe you.

i finally managed to completely remove the iq updater from my computer (a difficult process, third party malware attached to itunes downloaded by previous owner.  i have no use for itunes), and also located and removed three additional viruses not picked up by macafee, or microsoft.  i am hoping these recent changes help with overall reliability.  computers just seem to be an ongoing hassle...  oh, carrier pidgeon, where have you gone?     ;)

Vegans are rarely organized enough.  Drug company, maybe.  I doubt it's someone who failed at the diet. They know we are sincere, and are interested in truth, not dogma, and are more-or-less sympathetic to our cause.

We were down while I was asleep.
Thanks CK for sending a message on FB.
Seems this time there was a bad crawler called Magpie Crawler operated by Brandwatch.
I've seen this before a few days ago.
I have firewalled out their IP.

The DOS continued with the bad bad guy using a different IP.

Which I firewalled out just now.

Now I can see we are such a TRUTHER website we've pissed off some one or some people who are just TRUTH HATERS.

Amazing how a sleepy seeming far fetched "raw paleo diet forum" can elicit an attack.

We must be getting too popular.

I bet it's the vegans.  This kind of spiteful silly stuff is just like them.  If it were Big Pharma, the attack would be more devastating.

whatever happened to the concept of allowing everyone to have their own opinion, without fear of persecution?  these "bad guys" should get a life...

...outside of ours.

i don't understand all the computer jargon you've posted in this thread, and whether or not it's critical info...  but maybe posting less information about how your site runs, would make it more difficult to be "attacked"?

btw, i've been able to log on, in the first attempt recently...  not sure if it's related to what you've done lately, but it's better now for me!

The vegans have been trolling us on and off for years.  My relentless bannings have finally gotten them to stop trolling (my member title is for real), but I guess they think paying some Chinese kid a few dollars to try DOS attacks is going to accomplish something.

I have news. They aren't going to stop ANYTHING. Worst case scenario is that we move ourselves back to our old yahoo group, which is still active, and just put a forwarding link to that group on this homepage.  It won't come to that, though, I'm pretty sure.
