Title: Is The Zoner Site Having Server Problems
Post by: Night Wing on January 27, 2020, 04:23:04 PM
For the last week, I've been having trouble sometimes getting to the this Zoner site. If I click on my bookmark link, it takes sometimes 30-50 seconds before I'm able to access this site.

At other times, I get timed out with the prompt below:

Code: [Select]
Service Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

Additionally, a 503 Service Unavailable error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Also, there are times when I'm on the Zoner site, when I want to go to another sub forum, it takes again about 30-60 seconds or I get timed out with the prompt above.

What really gets me is when I type a message and I can't Submit it because I get the prompt again. I've used 4 different computers, 3 different mice and two different operating systems which are a linux distro (Mint) and Windows 7.

When I look at the guests, sometimes there are between 3,000- 8,000 guests with like 5-7 actual registered users. I have a hard time believing there are between 3,000-8,000 guests.

So I'm thinking there is a server problem because it can't handle all the guest traffic or these guests might be "bots" doing a DoS (Denial of Service) attack.

Is anyone else having problems with the Zoner site? And I'll have to copy this post just in case the post won't take. If I get timed out, with a copy of this post, I can post it later if I'm able to get back in to the Zoner site.

We have been having some DDOS style attacks (on a small scale).  We thought we had resolved this earlier but it looks like we still have an issue.  More soon...

Yes. Times out. Server unavailable. Assumed it was related to my moving to Georgia from RI..

For about the last week, every time I go go to Standup Zone Forum, I get Blue Planet Wingsurfing vid and tips.
This just happened again.
I can then click on Show unread posts like normal.

Hi,

It is likely that you are visiting the homepage first: https://standupzone.com/index.php
rather than the forum page: https://www.standupzone.com/forum/index.php

@ Admin

This site seems to back to it's usual self speed wise. No long hangs, no time out prompts. So, for now, it looks like things are back to normal.

Whatever you did, it seems to be working well. Thanks.
