I have been unable to connect to their forum for 2 or 3 days now...
Anyone else?
And anyone know what's happening? :confused:

Maybe his server forgot to add some Apache nodes like mine did last week :rolleyes:

Fatal error: Xcache not installed in [path]/includes/class_datastore.php on line 506

He may have updated something in the forum and things got screwy - Webzcas should be sent in for the rescue! :thumbsup:

The error I received when going there definitely points to something that is broken on their web server that is in turn breaking vbulletin.....there's a temporary work around for it, but in doing so, they might break other stuff in the process...lol

If he's using vBSEO, tell him to disable it. That was causing some probs here last week.

This is a very interesting one. The site is now on my server and is up. But the forum is extremely slow. Currently troubleshooting with my hosts. Not sure if it is a resource issue ie lack of them, or a software issue.

It's always been very slow - for the last 6 months at least.
A few times I've typed posts, hit submit, waited 60 seconds only to get a Page Can't Be Displayed error and the whole lot has been lost. :mad:

Mind you, I've also found the CM forum very slow recently too... :(

As long as it's using a known fast database server, I would suspect that the code is the culprit. Just for shits and giggles, I'd suggest changing out the VB skin (set it back to the default VB skin w/o plugins) that AGD uses and see if that makes a difference.

On the other hand, if you only moved the site itself and not the database, I'd strongly suggest importing the database to the server on your host and changing the VB config files to use that database. That would definitely cause it to be slow..

This is like light speed in comparison.

Looking like a coding issue. Many erroneus requests being constantly made to the database.

I don't believe it to be hardware resources however, otherwise all my sites which use mysql would be hanging in mid air. Which they are not.

As for vb, it still is as slow as anything with the default vb skin. One of the first things tested.

A couple more things need to be tested. Including a call I am going to place with vbulletin. Running 'top' from an ssh shell, shows mysql seriously eating into the cpu, looks like some pretty intensive queries being constantly run.

Will update here and on the AGD forum. But today is Sunday and I promised my boy I will take him on a train to the 'big park' in Bath. We might also go into a toy shop too :)
