Forum Problem

(This post was last modified: 05-31-2021, 04:40 AM by InsiteFX. Edit Reason: add checkup )

Hi, I' am on high speed broad ban cable and my speed is 240 mbs the forms are taking over a minute just to change into a topic,
also when replying it takes almost 3 minutes to save it. This has been happening since yesterday morning I know the forums
crashed last night but there is still some problem. This only happens here all other web sites are fast and working.

I just checked with Chrome's developer tools and it is getting a 404 error on:


Checked 4 times same error. and the load times are way up into like 3 6 secs on other files.

Same here, same error, even the homepage is super slow right now.

The CodeIgniter main page is slow too. 7 seconds load time unacceptable.

you know its strange when you think about writing code for a blog (its in the new book by Lonnie ) then you write code to allow cooments on that blog. Its not that much of a quatum leap to go from a blog that allows commments to a forum system since in essence a forum is just a thread posted by someone and replies are allowed.

So i'm not sure why instead of using a 3rd party system , instead using CI4 itself a forum sytem is written and hosted.

I previously got as far as writing code for a blog that allowed comments and to be honest my ability is modest to say the least ; i didn't go the route of using facebook etc to log in ; instead users could register with any use name they wanted , and it was the content of what they said that was the main focus and that mattered to me. I put a simple filter on the text submitted to take out swear words etc, since there was no way I myself could act as moderator 24 hrs a day or pay for anyone else.

If anyone is objective with the current forum setup and the fact crashes could be described as "quite frequent" , is it really fit for purpose ?

Of course its easy to say than do my setting up a dedicatde s ystem .

I do appologise for typo i've recently switched my OS from Slackware (that had everything installed including the kitchen sink) to Vanilla Arch. Spelling errors are not coming up like they used to.

I will get around but having a break for a few days , after managing to set up apache on Arch and get virtual hosts working with php 8. I had sccs and previously used gulp to convert scss to css; could get that working on Arch so spent several hours switching to Grunt to do the job; thats now working as well!

Well I' am on 240 mgs broad band cable and it is taking 1 1/2 to 2 minutes just to load the forums.
Same thing when I click on a forum topic 1 1/2 to 2 minutes to change to that topic then it takes
1 1/2 to 2 minutes to get to the post to read it.

This is just plain unbearable.

I noticed this too during the revamp of the forums. Based on the discussions in Slack, the slowness can be caused by the change in the hosting provider.

Hi Paul,

There is a big problem, I just clicked on this topic to read your post and this is what I got after 2 minutes.

Error 524 Ray ID: 6590195aae78effd • 2021-06-02 10:46:38 UTC
A timeout occurred

Also it is taking almost 2 minutes just to post a reply to a post.

It's not just the forums the main CodeIgniter website is doing the same thing.

Sorry everyone, this is indeed a confirmed issue. I changed a lot of things at once: patched the server, upgraded MyBB, upgraded our theme, added plugins. I'm not sure what has caused this but the slowness started early in the chain so I am hesitant to start rolling back any of the smaller changes.

I've tweaked some of the MyBB optimization settings and changed to the Files cache driver to take some load off the database. It seems to be working slightly better for now - hopefully that will get us through until I have more time to dig (or someone more familiar steps in).

For those who didn't see it, check out Lonnie's Announcement (https://forum.codeigniter.com/announcement-1.html).
Also, good news: I finished rebuilding the database and it seems to have fixed the 404 issues! Forums should be fully functional again, with the caveat that we still have DDoS defense mode in place while we research the possible load causes. Special thanks to everyone on Slack helping this dummy figure it out. Smile

apart from the speed issue, you might be interested in the following
1. the first time i access the forums via "forum.codeigniter.com" using chrome 91.0.4472.77 (which has a cookie) i get
"Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit."
the second time round, it works.

2. if i use firefox which doesn't have a cookie, it displays a page "please wait we are checking your browser and a captcha.
having completed the captcha picture choice (correctly I believe!) I'm left looking at the same page ie it hasnt moved on so no indication as to whether I failed the captcha or not. tried this twice and no success.

3. typing forum.codeigniter.com in the browser address brings me to the http page not the https page. i thought it was standard practice to default the htaccess to https
