For the last few months I have been noticing that the site has been getting slower and slower. I can live with a little waiting but if I have to wait two minuets just for one page to even start to load something is wrong.
I'm also having an issue where I am being randomly logged out.

Yeah, I was about to post about the same thing. At times it will be quick but most of the time it just sits there... Sometimes pages time out trying to load. Sad

Same here. You are not alone....

edit:

The site has slowed to such a crawl that something is very clearly broken.... Hope it gets back to normal soon.

it is odd. At this moment it is fairly snappy. It's 11:19pm my time (CST). About an hour ago, I couldn't even log in the page was taking so long to load. :/

Iím aware of the problem and will be wrenching on it this week. Our web host doesnít offer support for running third party applications such as phpbb, so Iím on my own to fix it. I optimized the database a few weeks ago, but the improvement was marginal. Iíll try a few things and post an update on how itís going.

It's still nice to know that you are at least attempting to fix the problem Nitro. Smile

Ok, I did a little black magic on the PHPBB installation. Itís running on a new MySQL 5 database on a different server than the original. The old database was MySQL 4 based and running on what appeared to be an overloaded server. It was dog slow even running the database administration software. Anyhow, let me know if performance problems continue and Iíll try some additional magic. Thanks for reporting the issue.

Well that would explain the forum going offline a while ago but so far the site seems faster. We'll see what it's like in a few hours.
