Site Traffic

Recommended Posts

Recently I've noticed the site has been responding quite slowly and I'm curious to know why. My internet and PC are good enough to load pages quick enough so I'm assuming it's something to do with the site itself. It takes about 15 seconds longer than usual. Any idea why?

 

Also this wasn't an angry post, just letting you know something isn't right :)

It's due to the server load (I think), it's averaging about 40. I'm trying to sort it out but it will take some time. The site itself is very optimised, but the server is making it run slowly due to the large amount of traffic server-wide.

Thought so just making sure you were aware in case there was an easy fix. Im happy to wait, it seems to be slightly quicker today either way :)

Since the maintenance brake yesterday, the site seems to be loading a lot quicker. Is this a coincidence or did you change some things? :)

No, the maintenance yesterday was for adding the new groups in - it's purely by coincidence at the moment, the server load is low.

Ahh I see. Is there anything that can be done as a long term solution to the server traffic? I'm just curious.

Not really. It depends on abuse accounts being disabled on the server, and the amount of other websites hosted there. I have already contacted the host; if it doesn't improve soon we're changing servers.
