Hello guys,

Once again the website was down for a couple of days. Do you know why ? Same problem (too many connections...)

Hi Brian.

This is not a down-time.
"Too many connections" is clear to everyone, the system can't handle that many visitors at the same time.
When that occurs, I can only suggest that You wait a while before You visit the website again - maybe a half hour.

I will notify Administrator about this event, but I don't know whether or not Forums-Free got enough income to change this.

Hello Mikkel,

If it was down for about 30 minutes, that would be OK, but the whole website (and forums) was KO for about 3 days which is not the same. And, unfortunately, it's not the first time it happened.

Anyway, I hope you guys will find a solution for all these recent troubles. :)

Hi Brian.

Well, that sounds like a DDoS attempt, even though they usually doesn't take 3 days.
It MIGHT have been a backup procedure or some sort of update procedure which has taken all the resources available - then nobody is able to use Forums-Free.
I must admit that I haven't noticed any problems lately, except that the support board has been dead (as in no or few support requests).
