PCA Server errors

  Forum Editor 18:12 20 Jul 2005

As many of you will know, we've been seeing quite a few CF error messages of late.

This problem seems to be related to the work we've been doing behind the scenes to speed page loading. I think we're seeing the site run faster now, but there are those errors...........

Tracking down the cause(es) is far from straightforward, we're into fairly deep waters here, and it will help the backroom staff enormously if you can work with us to resolve things. We're doing a code sweep, and checking the database statements, and we'll try to write a routine which 'catches' the errors as they're generated, so we can see exactly what happened, where it happened, and when. What we want to know from you is precisely what you were trying to do when the error is generated - by that I mean which forum area you were using, and whether you were posting to a thread, clicking a post to read it, or moving from place to place - you get the idea.

Please don't fill up this thread with general chat about the problems - stick to simple reports along the lines I mentioned if you would. We're determined to get to the bottom of all this, but at the moment we're short on data.

Many thanks - I'll post this in Speakers Corner too.

I had an unusual one last night 19/07/05 trying to get into HelpRoom on about four occasions. One of the occasions I managed to get a screen shot click here all I was getting was a blank page with a little < in the top left hand corner, the time as you see by the clock was 21:42 UK time. This also happened refreshing a page as well.

The errors I commented about previously happened mostly early morning. I would click on two posts OK but if I made a response to one, the site would sieze up. This same thing happened every day for about five days.

Have now logged out and back in at least 5 times and every time I have to re-enter my details even though I tick "Remember my details".
