Just restarted the server. The hosting company is claiming we have too many website hits per hour. Maybe well get queue it and make everyone wait in line to visit the page lol

and hopefully they hosting will implement server side caching sometime today. They are continuing to suggest it's because we have too many people hanging out on the forum ;)

Somehow, I don’t think that’s going to change. ;)

Just curious, if the stats are correct that there have been less than 100 people online today, how many people do they consider too many?

Chrome is not liking the new certificate. For now please use other browsers or tapatalk. Should have this resolved tomorrow.

In this case its safe to tell chrome to continue to the site

I think all SSL (Certificate) trust issues have been resolved. let me know if anyone still gets warnings from your browsers or devices.


Also, I turned on some firewall rules that might affect linking content from other sites to posts here, or linking content from this site to other sites. I want to block the bad guys but not the good guys. So If anyone notices images/links not working please let me know right away so I can look into it and get the firewall to allow it.

On any modern browser, newer than 5 years or so, on desktop or mobile the forum just hangs on me since yesterday.  I've had to revert to using a mobile browser from years ago for it to work.

My mobile chrome browser, which was giving me SSL warnings yesterday, seems to be working fine now.
