Don't go near the pond, unless it needs topping up!

perhaps you don't call it that Wedgy - the bit that tells you someone else has just posted, so do you still want to post your reply, Is it a time thing?

Yes, flood control is a little different (but could have an effect, so might need to adjust it).

The thing that failed this morning was "Post Review". For those that don't know, if there has been a post added to a thread you are replying to, before you have hit submit, it will warn you before you submit your post.

This morning, between me, XP, RLN and Mayfly we broke it on Mallets Mallet.
Basically, when you post, its submitted to a cache, which then in less than 2 seconds, commits the cache to the database.
Because we all posted within seconds of each other, it got its knickers in a twist and didn't warn anybody - because our posts were still in the cache and not in the database.

This maybe why this function has the disclaimer "Not advisable for chat forums" =)) . So I have disabled the function for fun and games presently.

This incident was an insight into what could happen WHEN we have 500+ users, so I need to pay attention to it.
The only solution right now is to adjust "Flood Control". At present it is set to 15secs (you cannot post again within 15secs of your last post). This goes un-noticed as its so short. I may need to increase this, to at least 30secs.

Still thinking ;)

On Tuesday, I notified the server company with an issue I was having with the server software. It was a big problem (in a technical sense), but didn't affect the day to day workings of the forums.

Todays story:
3.30pm I receive an email saying there is no solution other than rebuilding the server. I ring them and discuss it. "Very slim chance of getting it done today, most likely Monday".
3.56pm I receive an email saying the engineer will rebuild the server at 4pm.
4.06pm Server goes down
4.30pm Server is back and I start reconfiguring the server and rebuilding the forums from backups.
5pm Forums back online.

You may find you are missing some posts. My last backup of the database was at 3.51pm.


My backup was 5mins before I got informed it was going down and announced it.
