Default Recent Outages, Slowdowns and Tapatalk

As I'm sure you all know we've had some instances of the site slowing down and even outages in the past two days.
Some of you may have noticed that Tapatalk(TT) isn't working as well.

Yes, they are connected.

Late Saturday night I installed the latest update to the TT plug in, ever since we've been experiencing Denial of Service Attack type of issues however they are NOT malicious.

What appears to be happening is that the new version is essentially trying to download every page of the site for the TT portal. It is sending periodic bursts of requests literally for all pages/threads/posts on the site.

Obviously this is not normal and we think it is due to the older version of PHP being used to run vBulletin 3.8.x conflicting with the new version of TT.

In response to this we have disabled TT for the moment and the host company is moving us to a new server over the next 24 hours. This may make pages slow to load sometimes but we should remain up during the transfer.
After it is complete we'll re-enable TT and verify that the problem is not continuing.

This also means it's time to start looking at updating the forum software again. I had hoped to do that earlier this year but between catching COVID, my Mom passing and other family issues it got delayed.


TL;DR: New Tapatalk version tried to copy the whole forum at once and screwed up the server, Tapatalk is down while we move to a new server to hopefully solve the problem and we're going to need to readdress updating the forum software.

Good luck on the transition and hopefully the updating of the forum software will not impact us too much with older PC's/operating systems.

Thank you for all your efforts, it greatly appreciated.

Respectfully
Kyle

Thought it was just me.

Is it possible to donate to you to help support the forum? I spend a lot of time on here and have learned a tremendous amount of info, not even counting the great people I’ve met.

Thanks Kes for the heads up. Knew there was/is an issue, just didn't know about up-grades to work thru.

only chrome doing it. firefox is ok

chrome is saying

Not Found
The requested URL was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

chrome now works if I do this https://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/
but not with https://www.calguns.net

I haven't been able to get on for a couple of hours using Firefox and I just tried Edge and was able to connect.

Went back to Firefox, cleared the two Calguns cookies and it came up.

So if you have not cleared the CG.Net cookies, you might do that.

Thanks for the explanation Kes - good luck getting it straightened out.

Glad you survived the bug, and very sorry to hear that your mom passed away! Sincere condolences to you and your family.

Being a director in two foundations I'm sorry for what is happening but thankful I don't have to deal with it. Kes, I understand your mother passed. I'm sorry and will keep you in my prayers. Please feel free to contact me privately if the need arises.

I had TacFan's issue until this morning.

I deleted cache and cookies and everything is working perfectly after that.

MAC OS using Safari or Firefox.

No issues yesterday or last night with an iPhone.

No problems here.

And Kestryl, when you upgrade the site software, please leave the appearance roughly the same. Gunboards, for instance, changed their software last year and it now completely sucks with colors and confusion.

I agree on that, but I'm and old dog and did not like old tricks and don't want to learn new ones.

On a money thing- would it be annoying to have members watch a 15 second commercial when they sign onto the forum?

The picture/attachment problem has its own thread - http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s....php?t=1732734.

I have it too; seems associated with the recent changes.

Kestryl, for some reason, the system is not remembering me. When i close the window after logging on, it doesn't remember me, and I have to log back on again. Just started doing this after the melt down the other day.
