Thanks for the heads up Evan, I just had an e-mail about this and it looks like the server took some automatic steps to restart the problematic services. I upgraded PHP last night (which has made page rendering much faster ), so I'll keen an eye on this in case it is related to that.
I was able to access the site, but received the same message as Evan, when trying to reply to one of the threads. First at 10:13 am. It looked normal again within a few minutes, but happened again at 10:30 am. The thread, in case it helps, was V_R's "Hackers Remotely Kill Jeep."
Sorry folks, the server has been temperamental for the past ten mins - I'm under the hood trying to figure out why this version of PHP is causing problems. I think someone may be DDOSing the server, as the load gets extremely high from one particular page.
Thanks Evan, I was just about to make a post here as it happens . I've patched PHP again as there was a new version released which may fix the problems we had last time. Let's see how it goes this time .
I've made some significant changes to IIS/PHP in the last few moments, so I'll be keeping a close eye on how the server performs. If it works, it means that the site is around 8x faster at generating pages (although that won't necessarily be visible as most of the loading time is based on the distance of the server). Fingers crossed this works better than last week!
