Server issues

Postby MaxGravy » Tue Jan 07, 2020

You may have experienced slow response times today and possibly even errors. The site was hammered by a server in Ukraine. IP: 176.121.196.239 and others.

LiquidWeb has always been fast to respond (and I highly recommend them for your serving needs). Today they increased security and made changes to our server. These changes might block real users from Ukraine but I doubt they will cause any issues for most folks here. If you do have issues, please let me know!

Here's the last update from LiquidWeb:

Thank you for that information. I installed our ModSecurity rules and also set LFD to check for and block IP addresses for ModSecurity errors. This should hopefully help keep the server more stable and protect it from abuse. ModSecurity may block legitimate requests as well, so please let me know if you notice any errors when using the site, and we should be able to create whitelists for any false-positives we come across. Also please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

I haven't had any issues today. For the past two or three weeks I randomly get a web page crash resulting in a page of what looks like a hex dump.

The site was just down for about 20 minutes. As usual, LiquidWeb responded promptly and efficiently, and got us back up pronto. Apparently the site exceeded its memory allocation. Not sure why, probably too many bots visiting the site. So we doubled the RAM. This should not happen again. As you were.
