Website Access Problems These Days

Postby teak » Tue Oct 11, 2011 4:09 pm

For the last 3 months I've failed more often than succeeded in getting web access to the Archiseek Forums.

Some times of the day (e.g. lunch-hour) are worse than others.

What exactly is the problem ?
Is the site in semi-perpetual maintenance ?
Are you trying to webserve the site on your own PC or what ?
Surely some deal can be made with a hosting company.
Things can't be that bad, can they ?

If people are frustrated in gaining access to a forum then they usually start to leave it.
With site stats showing lower hits the advertisers won't be interested and the whole plan collapses.

Talk to us about this. :angel:

The site is hosted on a very nice server, there`s just a glitch with wordpress that we need to cure. Still trying to cure the problem but essentially I believe that the wordpress caching plugin used in causing the machine to stop at times of stress. Middle of the day being symptomatic of this.

As regards advertisers, there are none, nobody is interested, and hasn`t been for years and even then only half-heartedly.

I've been publishing archiseek since 1996 and I could count on one hand, the amount of advertisers who have wanted to use the site (outside of the scatter gun google approach).
