Re: Yours or Mine
I note in Message 498, Message 500, Message 501 the graphic is no longer being displayed. In "peek" the address is still there and the graphic is still out on the web.

I am seeing the same, with both firefox and konqueror.

However, it looks as if the image might first be showing (oversized), and then disappearing. I don't see that every time, and it happens quickly.

Well, then it isn't Mine. Or Yours? Hmmm.

Thanx, all.

This falls under the category of, "What was I thinking?" Thanks, everyone, for bringing this to my attention.

For those interested, I reversed the order of a couple Javascript function arguments, and I did it consistently everywhere. And forgot that the JS calls to this function are part of the message text recorded in the database for any message with images, so for messages before the change the arguments became in the incorrect order.

I should be able to write code to update the database to fix the function calls in the text of older messages, probably within the next few days.

Is EvC super slow today? It takes forever for my computer to load a page and sometimes it times out and I get that error page with the message that refers to Apache server and Port 80.

I was having the same problem on Saturday. Yahoo was indexing EvC at the time, but not very aggressively, so I don't think that was the problem. I restarted the Apache server and that seemed to fix it.

This extreme sluggishness has been happening from time to time. A few times it was because someone was banging on EvC extremely hard, i.e., a denial of service attack (I add the IP address to the "no access" list and this fixes the problem), but other times I could find no reason and simply restarted the Apache server.

It might be related to a communication issue between the MySQL server (runs the database where all EvC information is stored, like messages) and the Apache server. Upgrading to newer versions might help, and if the problem becomes severe that is something I will try, but installing new versions of fundamental software like these is often accompanied by problems and/or incompatibilities, so I'll not take this course unless the problem becomes so severe that I'm forced to try this.

The forum has been almost unusable for me for 2 or 3 days. Minimum delays of 30-60 seconds before loading, sometimes longer and sometimes resulting in a server error. It took 70 seconds to connect to this post.

We didn't look loaded enough at 4:19 AM to be having any performance issues, but I have changed an Apache parameter (FcgidMaxProcesses: 20 => 8). We'll see if it helps.

I have been having lots of trouble logging in today and had an earlier message about it not post.

I just got this message a while ago.

Error: Dispatch table lookup failure, control does not exist:

I hope this helps, thanks for all you do, keeping this site running.

Thanks for the info. I don't know if it will help, I'm not good at interpreting tracert's, and I don't know if the timeouts on their internal servers indicate a problem with those servers or with my server, but I've filed a ticket with the webhosting company.

mark thread as read
Hey Boss, is it just me or are others having the same issue. On the All Topics page, when I click the folder to mark a thread as read, I have lately had to click it numerous times for it to take. Sometimes I've had to click 10 or 15 times.

The website is having a performance problem. Most requests are very slow. I'm investigating.
