Forum running slow

Is the forum running slower now a days?
It seems to be taking a long time for the forum to respond and when it does it sometimes comes back with either a blank page or Internet Explorer cannot display this page.
It has started to run a lot slower over the last couple of weeks and I sometimes need to refresh the page several times in order for it to pick up.

I’m not having this problem with any other web site at the moment.

Yep, exactly the same here - and I’m using Firefox. It often returns “page load error” when trying to link from one page to another but sometimes works using the back button. Been like it for well over a week and doesn’t seem to matter what time of day or night???

Even had problems posting this

same here.

Good… I thought it was just me… :wink:

At home i don’t seem to have many problem, but at work 80% of the time i can’t get on.

I just get a white page saying something like “timed out error”.

Yeah I have a similar problem, but only when running on wifi for some reason. I have to go back and re submit :?

Slow for me too all others i visit including my own are working normally.

I will put a ticket in to the ISP, but it is running fine for me.

Can some of you having issues ping and tracert the server for me and paste the results here.

Might be a bottle neck somewhere else.


Exactly the same here. I reckon it’s the multiple GTO owners that are slowing us down :wink:

Mark, If you can tell me how to ping the server I will mate :wink:

Takes ages and many attempts to post a reply for me, and the forum is slow too.

It also takes quite a few attempts to get top the log on screen

Cheers Rob

If it helps, the front site is also playing up as well ie not the forum :wink:
Also the top GTOUK logo/picture on the forum pages doesn’t load every time.
This is pointing stongly towards the server running slow and it still happens when I’m the only one on the site at 5am.

ive been having the same slow page loading problems for a few days now

Slow for me too


It’s slow, the page often doesn’t load and the admin should be shot… out of the end of one of those human cannon thingumy’s ! Not just for the slow running problem either :wink: .

Mark. :slight_smile:

Just pinged the site and this is what came back

Is that good or bad? Regardless… the site is definitely running slow at times. I thought it was just my connection, but it only runs slow here. Now I know it’s happening to others, I guess the ping thing is irrelavent…

Just done a tracert as well :smiley:

and used this web site and came back with these results:
