    Database Errors

    Are you guys seeing any? I've seen one myself, and I get email notifications about others, but I'm not sure if bots are hitting the server and overloading the connections limit, or if it's actual legit users.

    Please answer the poll and feel free to share any additional thoughts.

    If I need to upgrade the hosting, I'll do that, but obviously it's a big cost increase.

    It's been slower here, by quite a bit at times, and it's not on my end. I have nuked a couple spammers too (which was VERY rare), dunno if you saw it.

    It SHOULD NOT be that much sower given the lack of traffic during the holidays. The slowness started about 10 days ago and I did not bring it up thinking you were tweaking, it was sudden, not incremental.. I don't think it's a server thing unless something is hitting it hard, I'd look into that or maybe I should learn how to do that.

    IMHO something opened up. Slow, then after 3-4 days, spammers getting in, something is funky.

    I've received emails about errors my site, but I haven't seen any errors on the site itself...neither there, here, nor EMSQ.

    I haven't seen database errors, or any slowdown, but I am mainly reading. I did see a really large number of guests reported one time, something like 2 members and 14 guests, which seemed a tad odd.

    Looking at switching hosts shortly. Need to get funding figured out, then I'll pull the trigger.
