Site seems very slow + ocasionally get server errors?
I find it no coincidence that Henyman finds the site slow.
I therefore blame Henyman.
PS Noticed it also, server loads is mental.
i blame the admins
We were being ass raped by some clown that had a spam server set up. Opening up 100 connections a second. Poor Apache/PHP.
load averages: 43.39, 51.92, 54.29
Yeah, course it was going to be slow.
nice. shouldn't the firewall adapt to block connections like that automatically?
Once I update the rules, yes. I had removed some of the automatic blocks since there were some legit clients that were getting blocked. Most notably search engines.
x can you pm me the log location? Can't get on messenger atm
nm got it.
This has been happening throughout the weekend.
I have reported the offensive site now.
I had not noticed it. If you see this happening again, please send me an email!
