I woke up this morning to discover the forum not working properly.

I am working on the situation to see what is wrong. I am aware of it.

I believe I fixed the issue. Since this occurred overnight on a Friday, it looks like the forum was partially hacked. Most hacking activity is in the evenings, namely weekends. (Kids are out of school.)

IF anyone continues to experience problems (errors), please let me know.

Just five minutes ago, I tried to come to the forum, and it wouldn't work, then I tried again and it did.

EDIT: Okay, well forum keeps giving me problems, like one out of every five to ten clicks, it messes up.

Unfortunately, I can't spend all night trying to fix this as I have a BDAY gathering to attend to ... I will have to resume the investigation tomorrow. I apologize to everyone for this problem --

Very sporadic ... every 20 requests, I might get an error.


MJ,

Time for a new secure, fast, host......I know you want to. Your own dedicated box for under $150 per month! Or you can do shared hosting for $24-$30 per month, with 99.99% uptime.

Let me know, I guarantee you wouldn't have this issue with me.

Seemed like a MYsql database issue earlier this morning. But anyways, the hosting with us is 100% fully managed. If that had happened if you were hosting with me, it would have been taken care of within 30 minutes. You wouldn't have even had to break sweat or waste your time with it....Just something to think about.

I get the following error. Hope that helps somewhat. Btw, I agree with others, enjoy your B-day.

Yeah, I just got the same messages as Bilge.

Don't worry about it now, though. Of course, take your time. It's your birthday -- enjoy it! That's the true important stuff in life.

MJ-

Hope you had a most excellent B-day (it's a pity you had to spend time here under the hood)

Here are the error messages I get:

Warning: require_once(./global.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in D:Inetpubthefastlanetomillionsshowthread.php on line 94

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required './global.php' (include_path='.;c:php5') in D:Inetpubthefastlanetomillionsshowthread.php on line 94

Hope that helps.

BTW, when I first tried to get on yesterday at this time (6am or so), I was not able to-- but since early afternoon, I've gotten on the site w/no problems.

-Russ H.

OK, Round II -- this time I think it is fixed. I reinstalled and put thru 1,000 requests and could not repeat the error.

MJ-

Lots of problems this morning.

Couldn't get on-- had to reload again and again.

Once I got here, couldn't get to any of the posts (same error messages as yesterday).

Yesterday had less problems than this morning-- I'm guessing by the low number of new posts I'm not the only one.

Even posting the above message took me 3 tries.

I'm getting the error screens about 2 out of 3.

OK folks I'm really at my wits ends with this -- it appears the problem occurs overnight which tells me its an issue with the CRON system. I have the board software engineers looking it over. What gets me, is this started with no explanation, rhyme, or reason.

Typically these errors occur when you mess around with the software which I haven't done in about 2 weeks.

Strangely, I am finding that the recent posts that typically sit at the top of the page are missing. Otherwise, the forums seem to operating alright.

Thats because I disabled forum "add-ons" in attempt to isolate the cause of the problems. The new posts section is an add-on so I had to turn it off, among some other features.

Unfortunately, I haven't fixed the problem yet and the errors come and go like a fart in the wind.

MJ,

I know exactly what the issue is and how to solve it, I have sent you an email outlining my offer. Let me know if you are interested.

Thanks
