Continuing site problems, March 2019

I have been suffering problems reading and posting on the site for the last few days, resulting in error messages detailing a variety of database errors and out-of memory exceptions.

The site also running slowly, often timing-out my browser.

Although sbd posted at http://budgetlightforum.blogspot.com yesterday that he had finished an unexpected maintenance activity, the problems still persist for me.

Just posting this (if I can), to alert admin to ongoing problems, and enquire whether others are also seeing the same symptoms.

I’m using Firefox on XP (yes). Very occasionally I have a time out of my browser. Then I close Firefox and log in again. Every evening when I wrap things up, I run CCleaner. I don’t know if this helps me browsing the web, but it sure shortens the running down time.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Unfortunately still ongoing today.

I have further cleaned and checked my well specced machine.

VPN and AV disabled.

Nevertheless I continue to these sort of server-side errors, at least 4 times out of five. Once it happens, forget trying again for a few hours.

Making reading and posting almost unmanageable. Posting particularly.

UK based.

Thanks for your feedback.

$hit happens, as the saying goes. Big Smile   Sometimes I am amazed that all this modern day internet stuff works at all at the speeds we have become used to. Remember how it was back in the days when we used dial-up on a PC with CPU's like the 8088 that ran at about 5 to 8 MHz?  Now even the $35 RaspberryPi runs at GHz speeds.

 

Wow! The RPi has more processing power than the $1500 IBM we bought in '81. Both with no hard drive.

No issues here from tablet, phone or desktop. All using Chrome.

TT, what browser are you using?

If you are using chrome, are you using the latest?

BTW people…there is something going on with Chrome desktop. Google said it was “mandatory” to get the newest version. Which is not the usual language.

No issues using Firefox 66.0 (64 bit), Mac.

Pasting chunks of such error messages into Google often turns up disussion of them with clues to where they originate.

https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=Error+messagePDOExc...

leads to among others this:

https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/issues/1838548

And someone did ask about a similar error here last time the site was being fixed:

I should have previously mentioned (before I took a mental trip down memory lane) there was a period earlier today when the BLF site could not be reached from here in NM. However, whatever the cause, that problem cleared up and once again all is fine. Hardware/software a mix of:a PC running Win10 and a Chrome browser, an RPi running Raspian and a Chromium browser and two Android phones running Chrome browsers.

Just bought a π 0W for 5bux t’other day. Even has wifi built in, and is the size of a ketchup packet (got pix).

Anyhoo, only had a 5min hiccough where no one was answering.

Hi Tom Tom (and everyone else), my apologies for the slow reply. I’m currently traveling with very poor internet access, so I’m only handling urgent site issues. I’m looking through the system logs to see if I can figure out why that’s happening.

I’ve never had any problems regarding BLF speed, unless at peak times between 5:30 and 6:45 PM EST.

No issues here on Firefox. But the lack of SSL may become a problem in the future.

It would be a good idea to enable HTTPS, but SSL is deprecated. TLS 1.2 should be used at a minimum.

Let’s Encrypt! makes it very easy and free to obtain a certificate which is trusted by all major platforms.

Mostly using mobile devices, but I rarely have issues loading the forum. Maybe just a PC thing.

With respect, reports of “no problems” whilst encouraging, won’t help diagnosis for those may be. Who may still be virtually locked out, as am I.

It’s only because I am so stubborn that I keep trying, every once in a while something gets through.

I have updated http://budgetlightforum.blogspot.com/2019/01/down-for-maintenance.html#c... in the hopes that it is useful to sbd, once he is able to investigate.

Try 8.

Tom Tom, just curious, are you seeing this issue using different devices and different browsers?

I was. Full details on posted on blogspot.

Windows, Android, fibre broadband, 4G mobile broadband, my neighbour’s broadband, my Supermarket free WiFi, Opera, Opera Touch, Chrome, IE, Edge, Firefox. Ajax errors, Drupal errors, SQL errors, timeouts.

Have had better luck today, but still not perfect.

Hoping that sbd’s maintenance today has resolved things. I’ll give it a day or two.

Try 1

Doesn’t sound like anyone is having problems other than you.

No problems here either. I reckon there is something else to blame if it’s doing it on all those examples. How can it be sharing the problems over all platforms and connections, seems very strange to me.

Hi Tom Tom, did things improve for you today after I finished the routine maintenance ?

Greatly improved since yesterday. Not quite perfect, still seeing the occasional error messages, and being bumped off when trying to post (just returns to an empty comment field) but more like 1:10 than 10:1. Hoping that might settle down.

Many thanks for addressing this, I was beginning to get paranoid thinking it was just me.

Oops, that didn’t go too well. Another server error. Try 2
