      Downtime over the weekend

      Sorry for the downtime over the weekend. I was away and could not access a PC (nor could I remember the password anyway) to reboot the server.

      Judging by the server logs / errors, I bet it was because of that.

      I wasn't aware of the error on Anytime, although I have just read the thread about it. I think it was just a case that the server had too many requests on the database at a particular time and it just fell over.

      Hi Alan

      Yes from approx 20:36 until 21:22

      We are getting absolutely battered with visitors at the moment, and obviously the server cannot handle the loads. Hopefully, we will be upgrading to a newer faster server over the next few weeks. Although this one was a pretty fast one initially.

      That's strange Steve, as the times are definitely right due to the logs, and I was actually viewing the site when it went down.

      Once I managed to finally log onto the server and restart the services it came back up again for me.

      Hi Ged
      I was browsing posts and as I moved to another page it seemed to slow down. So I looked at my router thought It might be my connection. By the time I tried to reconnect it could have been after 20:36 all I was getting was trying to connect then Done with a Blank page. With all those Visitors Just goes to show how Interesting and Important SkyUser is.
