I have one member that hasn't been able to access our forum for about a week. This is the message he gets:

 Network Error (tcp_error)

A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out"
The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.

For assistance, contact your network support team.

He has tried different browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari) and cleared his cache and cookies.

Other members have reported it being slow on occasion but they have been able to get in and post.

Support / Our Forum has been down since Monday evening
« on: September 27, 2012, 05:11:19 pm »
Our Forum has been down since Monday evening, I wasn't told about it by Members until Wednesday morning. I also haven't been able to access the support forum since yesterday morning and finally got in here this evening.

At first I was getting the blue screen with the white cloud that said data base error. Today I am getting the following

"Connection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later. "

Support / One Member having trouble accessing one board
« on: January 30, 2012, 08:44:48 am »
I have one member who is having trouble accessing one of our boards. She can get into all the other boards with no problems. I have checked all her settings, nothing has changed. Other members are not having trouble and she's logged out, rebooted computer and all that. Also when she accesses the index page the only thing there is a few pictures and an article.

She keeps getting this error: 

"Database Error
Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator."

any idea's?

Support / Very slow forum, locking up and timing out
« on: November 01, 2010, 09:52:40 am »
Almost all of my forum members are located in the UK. Most if not all of them that I have spoke with are having trouble with a very slow forum. Sometimes its fine and others it slows right down, Timing out when posting, taking forever to log in and post to threads. This has been going on for at least a month but seems to be getting worse. All have different ISP's and most use FireFox or one uses Safari and has the same result and have all upgraded to the new 3.6.12 version for FF.

This is a message that a few members got yesterday:
The connection has timed out:                                     

The server at is taking too long to respond.             
    *   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a     few moments.

    *   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

    *   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Version: SMF 1.1

Any ideas on how we can speed things up?
