Is the main site down for any one else?

Nope...

No indeed

How are you posting if the site is down? Unless you posted afterwards, but thentheres really no point in posting...

The power went down at the main hosting center, and then the backup power went down. It actually affected thousands of web sites, including this one, but it has obviously been fixed.

I thought you were making the switch to a dedicated server.

Post by: Fink on April 25, 2006, 02:21:42 pm
Is it just me or have the forums been running super slow? They're fine now, but like 20 mins ago I kept having timed out errors
Title: Re: Main site down?
Post by: Gaming Steve on April 25, 2006, 02:51:16 pm
It is a dedicated server. The entire data center went down, meaning that thousands of servers went down at once, including this one.
Title: Re: Main site down?
Post by: Fink on April 25, 2006, 03:02:26 pm
It's not very dedicated to its job if it just decides to quit. Come on! We need the Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan! Guys here!

Sorry for necrobumping this.

I just wanted to say that the site has been going down more often than it used to. Why do you think that is happening? :-\
Title: Re: Main site down?
Post by: PatMan33 on November 05, 2006, 04:14:12 pm
No idea but I would not be surprised if it had something to do with the other little "problems" that we have been having...
Title: Re: Main site down?
Post by: PatMan33 on November 07, 2006, 01:01:33 pm
The damn site keeps crapping out every few hours. When is Steve going to address it?


I know he is busy but it has been a very very long time. Does anyone else around here know how this stuff works? Ask Steve to make you the maintenance team or something.



**EDIT**

Today is some of the worst it has ever been. When is something going to be done about this?
Title: Re: Main site down?
Post by: LadyM on November 09, 2006, 02:17:57 pm
Steve restarted the server, lets see if that helps.
Title: Re: Main site down?

I'm having real trouble with the forum side of the site today. It was going really slow all morning and for the past hour or so it's been down all together for me. Is anyone else getting this and is there a reason for it?
Title: Re: Main site down?
Post by: Oviraptor on November 22, 2006, 06:11:13 pm
Same here. I hope we can return to how it used to be, right after Steve switched server.

Not as fast as usual. Sometimes the page doesn't want to load at all. It's annoying, but I'm ok as long as it doesn't get worse.
Title: Re: Main site down?

Sometimes getting not the forums is painfully slow, then any subsequent browsing of the forums is fast.

ah, thats alright then, as long as it's a known random crash, then we can all pretend like it didn't happen!
Title: Re: Main site down?

Happened for like a very short second early in the day as well when I clicked a link but that only lasted like 2 seconds it seemed.

Alright ... finally the site is back to normal. I just installed an additional 1 MB on the server and the site is finally running super-crazy-fast like it should.

And now I can finally get going on the rest! ;D

The http server was down and I couldn't get in to do a reset for some reason. So it took a bit longer for the server hosts to restart the server.

But all is back to normal, no worries.

Server went down, I didn't notice until yesterday. Normally it will restart itself but I changed the root password and forgot to change the password in the file for the restart procedure.

Quickly restarted it and now it's fine (took all of 5 seconds). Sorry about that.

There is something wrong with the site!! I can acess the site and the forum with my laptop but I can't with my desktop. All I get there is a blank page that it's parked with godaddy.com. Oviraptor is getting the the same thing. We are writing Steve about the problem. It appears that a few people can get here and some can't. That is why the forum seems so slow at the moment.

It is fixed. GoDaddy just made a mistake with the DNS ... good freaking timing.

But it was a simple fix and I yelled at GoDaddy. Grrrrr...

"Tell 'em Steve Dave". hahaha, just kidding around sir. Honestly, it happened to me between 6:00 - 11:00am and I thought it only happened to me like once.

I thought that XSpore was going to bribe Godaddy into shutting it down so that they could buy it, and then XSpore would shut it down.  Good thing you got it back.

 :)Just gotta find the pride inside for Steve. I didn't want to call him the big cheese or say "You are the duke of New York, you ain't #1" to him because I don't want to disrespect the boss. Btw, were all cool guys, just like Fonzie....."Aaaaaaa" 8)

Yeah it relapsed for me but things are back now. Some folks will just need to wait a while for the Internet to uncross its eyes.

Lets hope so. I was really about to flip out about the damn go daddy crap, I thought they were trying to throw this website out of business. Other than that, you weren't around when I was agitated about this crap Forrest you slacker. >:(

Everything seems to be fine down here, other than the occasional server error. But that probably has more to do with my ISP than the site itself, so I'm safe...

for now...


This really has to get fixed. Some RP's in the Spork: Roleplaying and Story Games Corner have virtually died out. :-\
Title: Re: Main site down?
Post by: PatMan33 on February 24, 2008, 07:38:42 am
An RP dying out in two or three days of downtime has less to do with server issues and more to do with the people playing it I'd wager. :)

It went down because the account was reset. The renewal should have nothing to do with it, thats an accounting thing but it could have been related if someone did something wrong.

Anyway, its up and running fine now. Steve talked to them and it's sorted out.

I'm not sure. It was going pretty slowly for me a few minutes ago.

Man the server's got some really bugs.

It's hard to navigate here, place is becoming slow and unresponsive.
What's going on ???

All the youtube links?

The server was supposed to have been updated in anticipation for the increased load. Considering how well the transition went... don't be shocked. :P

When I type in www.gamingsteve.com it straight away comes up with a Page Load Error notice. Just thought I'd let you Mods know, in case anyone else is having this problem.

Try removing the Gaming Steve cookie, there may be a conflict in there somewhere. If that doesn't work, wait a bit and see if the problem doesn't fix itself. Should that not work... find religion.


**EDIT**
Hey you know what, it probably isn't Firefox. The forum's been acting up a lot this week.
Title: Re: Main site down?
Post by: PatMan33 on September 21, 2008, 08:31:38 am
Woo! Looks like all of the site's unreliability over the last week is coming to a head today!
Title: Re: Main site down?
Post by: tomasgaquino on September 21, 2008, 09:30:39 am
Yeah, because it loads just fine here on Firefox.
Title: Re: Main site down?

Works fine for me on FF.
Try clearing all your cookies incase there was a hidden one messing it up.

The site does that once in awhile.  Refreshing the page usually takes care of it.
Title: Re: Main site down?
Post by: Ultramarine on September 21, 2008, 12:03:57 pm
Hmmm.. well I have no problem with the site on any browser, though there has been a considerable amount of lag especially when I'm between making a post.

It's not severe but it gets annoying from time to time.
Title: Re: Main site down?

That's just the site debating if it really wants to post your comment.

Everyone else, Slarti.

Always does this in the midday.

Been awhile since I've been here midday.  Didn't know it was "normal."  Carry on then.

Don't call it that.

Don't get used to it. Let it haunt you.

Yea, both the site and the forum were down, I kept getting an error about not bieng able to connect to the server here.
Title: Re: Main site down?
Post by: LadyM on January 26, 2009, 12:38:59 pm
Steve reset the server in an effort to fix our email problem. He said that other problems arose so that's probably what caused the hiccups.
Title: Re: Main site down?
Post by: smjjames on January 28, 2009, 06:22:55 am
It happened again this morning, although for a shorter period of time. I assume that it's Steve resetting the server again?

No idea, it happened for me too.

The site is extremely slow for me today, loading a new page takes at least one minute.
