I get the same problem on my laptop, but via iPad seems to be fine. Maybe something to do with Chrome?

does it with me a bit, Firefox user, a couple of page refreshes and it's good to go again, surely the mayor has seen the complaint and looking into it...??

it is right at the start of the spring carnival after all, you'd think a good service before the busiest time of year would be a good idea..

Actually, that issue is at your end, Fiddly.

In relation to the missed server/database connections, I received feedback from the hosting company. Recently the amount of traffic that our website is receiving is exceeding the amount of resources available for the shared hosting package. When the concurrent connections to the website exceeds 125 connections any further connections are rejected with a 530 error message.

There are two options to address this issue;

1. Increase the number of connections from 125 to 250 by purchasing an Add On.

2. Move the website to it's own cloud server where resources are not constrained as they are in shared hosting.

Both expensive. The second option is preferable but super expensive. I'll have to weigh up and decide whether it's a financially viable option. Stay tuned.

If 125 is the limit, how come the record number on line has been 413 ?

Good Q max, particularly as some of us get it late arvo/early evening when there's hardly anyone even logged on Confused Maybe it's all those pesky robots LOL

I'd be seriously suspicious given their offered options i.e cash or more cash, I doubt the numbers'd vary much from last year to this but stand to be corrected.

People logged on would not always be connected to the database. A connection would entail "opening, running and closing" a call to the database. Robots may be responsible for some of it but also "guests" would constitute a large percentage of the calls. No, this company has been excellent and very helpful for over 16 years. I've always been warned that our site pushes the current package to the limit and I pay for a number of extras each month (extra disk space, extra bandwidth). It mounts up and the recent dive in the Australian dollar has been an added kick in the guts. Possibly the cloud server may be an equivalent option price-wise but providing the extra room to move.

wow only 125 connections...?????

another forum I frequent will have 900 plus members just viewing one tiny sub forum, I can't imagine how many connections they have overall, but 125 seems incredibly tiny..???

An old botany forum I used to be on years ago had 500 members on line at any given time and it was a very very small on line community...Confused
