I'm on cable, and according to my ISP, everything is running smoothly, and our neighbor who has the same ISP isn't having a problem, except when he tests my 2 sites, so it's not just me.

 

Anyways, I'm having problems with both mail and actually seeing my sites. They're on 2 different servers, so it's not a specific server problem. I'm just wondering if anyone else is having the same or similar problems. It's not just TCH hosted sites either. Yahoo and Google both are running crappy slow for me, along with LiveJournal and DeviantArt, so maybe it's gotta do with it being summer here in the states, and everyone's online (since it's too freaking hot to go outside).

To run a traceroute, if you are using windows,

 

1. Click on Start

2. Click on Run

3. In the box, type:

cmd

Press enter

4. A Dos-like window will appear. Type tracert ******

 

This has been posted in several places thoughout the forum.

Just for clarification, in Bruce's message, replace the ****** with the site you are wanting to trace.

 

To to tracert google.com, you'd type:

>tracert google.com

 

To tracert your site, you'd put your site's url there.

Yeah, I figured that, :). I'm not sure if it's my PC, my anti-virus/firewall, or ISP, but I'm getting this:

1 * * * Request Timed Out

 

for anything I try O.o

Oh heck no, :). Our firewall/viri protection is PC-Cillian :) Not even a trace of Norton on this PC :)

And you're still getting out to the Internet? Hmmmm...as Sherlock Holmes said many times: "Very strange." What about a ping? Same type of results?

 

BTW...sites load fine from the Tampa, FL area.

How about the blog part of it? The main part of SMF loads just fine, it just seems to be SQL: http://www.sarahsmidnightfantasy.com/wp/

 

I think it's gotta do with my theme (wordpress), because it was running semi-slow yesterday, but not this bad, and the creator's blog seems to be having similar problems with her version of it.

Here is a copy of a tracert from my home using Road Runner.

However your site took a long time to load. More than it did at work on my SBC DSL connection.

 

You are connecting to two outside sources that I see for ads and they could be slowing down your site tremendously.

 

What I would do is start taking things out (external) and see if it speeds up.

 

I also see that you use Akismet and Bad Behavior. I don't use either and use Spam Karma instead. Whether or not they are slowing it down I don't know. But there are some things to possibly check.

 

One more thing, I ran your blog though the validator and it came back with 11 errors.

The errors should be fixed (plugin that was supposedly validated wasn't).

I've got Akismet, Bad Behavior, and Spam Karma. All 3 keep me pretty protected (I've had major problems with spam).

 

I've done the removal of external items and that didn't really help at all. Still just sits and sits for about 5 minutes :)

Start removing your plugins one by one until you find out which one is causing it to slow down. I had this problem a while back and complained to Head Guru. Only after disabling all my plugins and turning them on one at a time was I able to find the one that was causing the problem.

I was in serious doubt, didn't think it would work, but I found the culprit, and it was a plugin. Bad part is that it shouldn't have affected it in hte first place because it involved comments O.o but THANK YOU!!

Good Catch Bruce! :)

Okay, my poor blog has been through a server crash (yes, I'm on 106 *sniffle*), and it's still running slow, but I'm thinking that's because, according to the current status, the SQL is still having problems (also explains the mail, since that area is also having problems -both in the red).

 

Just curious if there's a time-frame for getting those two back in the green, so that there's not a lengthly lull when I'm trying to do updates (fixing what died since I lost 4 days of work - my own fault though, since I didn't do back-ups), and checking to make sure they're working.

 

And TCH rocks, because we got immediate notification of it killing itself (yeah, that's how I look at it, :cool2:)

Just out of curiosity, which plugin was it?

You know, I don't remember. I restarted everything, and only added back certain ones, but it involved comments, and basically used js to assist with the codes, much like the js for posting (if you don't use the rich text editor thing)
