Just and update...

 

Ok, now running the TapaTalk fix (Which is what I think the overall issue was.) from 11:13 AM ET this morning.  I have not seen anyone say things were still bad...so I think that was it.

 

However...What we did do was...

 

Upgraded MySQL to ver 5.5

 

Also have XCache running again. (Had stopped it just in case)  XCache speeds up php code by caching the php scripts in a compiled format vs needing to compile it with each call.  The entire site runs off PHP and MySQL

 

Also now running the Sphinx search engine.  This is a very fast search solution vs MySQL standard search.  Each morning at 4:00AM CT it will slow the site down as it reindexes for just a few mins.  (Side note...new posts will be added to the search indexes within 10 mins of posting vs real time.)

 

So....Now let's see how this all goes.

would be curious to see what browsers in use if anyone has issue too.

some people, we won't mention them by name so as to not smoke them out, still use IE8.

I haven't seen any problems so far today (knock on wood) and I have been on a few times, and actually logged in and wandering a couple of times.

As I posted earlier I've experienced issues using Internet Explorer 10 and Google Chrome.

:lol:  I'm close to that with IE9, as I finally allowed Windows 7 to install IE10 last night.

 

I haven't seen any site issues with IE9 but I'm only at the site twice daily, at about the same times.

 

This isn't related to the thread but I've seen something change from IE9 to 10 this morning.  When I was using IE9 at this site, I could use my "back" browser button (I use the "Backspace" key, does the same) and my "first unread" indicator black dots would be automatically refreshed.  In other words, I would click on a thread's "first unread" black dot, read the unread posts, then use the browser back-page, and my unread black dots would be refreshed.

 

That's not happening with IE10.  I'm not sure if that's a "cookie" setting in IE10 or something similar related to the IE9-to-10 overnight upgrade that was downloaded.

 

It's a non-issue for the most part, since I have one of my keys mapped as "ctrl-w" or F5, to refresh with one key.

Hi...I want to turn off the Sphinx search engine and see if that helps this issue.  But I want to be sure you are on-line as I do not want to keep it off for hours. ;)  Let me know if you are around.

Well, I just had a report...

 

"Only have my iPhone with me right now, but the app works fine for me. I'm sending you this reply via the app. Left my iPad at home today. Might be able to borrow one here at work if you need me to."

 

So not sure if their is an "issue" per say.   Hummm...Running the current version?

 

Oh...this should really be in it's own thread as this thread is really about the slowdowns.   Sorry.

WTF ?

not up at 4?

LOL

 

not awful bad....but not great. been wondering if doing it every 12 hrs would actually work better. was wondering if 2 brief slows would be better then the 1 long one. I just don't know if it would be faster or not.

reminds me I need to enable slow logs on mine for sql and php-fpm too, keep forgetting.
