Last few days the forum appears to be running really slowly and at times not at all.

also not sure it's related but last week sometime whenever I clicked on the saved bookmark I was taken to some weird page (don't recall the specific page content but certainly wasn't S15oc)

ive tried on my Mac and two iPhones and the slow response is the same.

Have experienced the same the last few days, sometimes the forum is really quick but most of the time it's really slow and might even come back with this message.

I mentioned that when I click on a bookmark something else comes up, this is what I get:




usually clicking on the bookmark again brings up S15OC normally, as I mentioned this is happening on my Mac, 2x iPhones and my iPad. I haven't tried my laptop yet

on the Mac the page above looks slightly different but it's the same content

Yes, the hosting is running like a complete rusted bag of spanners. The forum and website usage isn't anything excessive, so I'll guess that it's a shared server and it's being hammered by other hosting. We used to have a fairy low utilized server, but it had to be changed a month or two back.

I will look into the possibly malware.

I've completely replaced the forum coding with originals. Let me know if you still get the redirections.

There appears to have been a script that had hogging too many server resources. This has now been resolved, but has to be monitored to see if it's a recurring problem. Everything is running craploads better!

Had been experiencing the same issues, seems great now.

The he file hosting redirect is something we get on Sxoc from time to time and is a vbuliten issue is it not?

If you mean the malware issue, yes there is a vBulletin problem, even though security flaws are patched quickly. The way to (apparently) stop reinfection is already implemented.

I still seem to be getting slow performance, other sites are fine. It's taken me a few days to be able to reply to a PM. Don't think the hosting issue is resolved. :no:

It's been good for a number of days, but the performance issue has returned. I've asked for details, but I have to wait for someone else to respond.
