Forum slowdown
« on: 04 Feb, 2018, 14:34:22 »
I experienced a tremendous slow down in all forum functions, especially yesterday.

The forum was down last noon for at least 2 hours and then all functions were too slow till this morning.

Is this a functional problem and has it been fixed?

Support gives me this sort of answers:

Your server is not down. Any slowdown you experience occasionally, it simply a variation in server load, network conditions and variations in number of visitors.

To which I reply:

Sure, is not down now, it was when I posted about it :)

"Any slowdown you experience occasionally, it simply a variation in server load, network conditions and variations in number of visitors."

I disagree about that, since I monitor traffic via Google Analytics and forum stats. The traffic is extremely low for what I am seeing, and this is highly irregular behaviour.

I disagree, too. The traffic was really low when I experienced the problems.

Issues should be resolved now. The cause was an incompatibility of http2, cpnginx and Safari/iOS as explained here.

Apple devices/browsers should also have no problem with accessing the site and/or any other sites hosted on the server.
