Solved Forum under daily maintenance

Post by Mercy on July 7th 2012, 3:17 am

My forum constantly gets maintenance issues and it seems like it's happening more and more frequently. I don't get an explanation or exactly what is going on. I'm afraid our forums may experience some sort of damage.

Do you have a link to your forum?

Hi!

Hmm, daily? A romanian forum had this problem too, but for 3 hours only. But I don't really understand why only some of forums get this. I never got this on my forum... And I had more than one forum, again, I never got the information tables about maintenance. It can be because the techinicians are doing some actions on this platform...

Here's the link to our forum. We're unsure of what the exact problem is, only that maintenance messages have been happening more frequently. The message is really vague; only says "We're under maintenance and will return shortly."

Wondering if this may cause future problems.

Hi,

How often & what times are these maintenances occurring? How long has this been happening for now? 2 weeks?
It could be explained that you have some personal attention of our developers doing some maintenances themselves to your specific forum's coding.

It shouldn't be anything to worry too much about, but once we know the times, we can further investigate Wink

Alright, I'll keep an eye on the certain times when it occurs, I'll monitor it more closely. I can't say how long it's been happening, only that it's been bugging our members.

Right now, our forum (www.Tenerifesforumoffun.com) is showing as undergoing maintenance. Are you guys working on it?

Edit: I'm in now. Maintenance message gone. Very Happy

How long ago did a member inform you about it, I mean. An aprox period of time is A-OK, it's just we need to know this to further troubleshoot it.

The forum back up time is done about 12 midnight in the winter and 1AM in the summer in UK time GMT+1
so if you get this warning at this time this is why our forum's need to be backed up and the server have a lot to deal with when doing so.

If it's any time after that then it cold be the tech's are working on one of the servers we have.

But most work is only done on a week day as far as i know unless there is a problem then they will work at weekends to fix the problem fast..

As darren1 says if we can get a time slot on when this is done and a screen shot of the page you get then this will help our staff more to dealing with your problem at hand

Thanx

Ape, believe it or not, but the backup system is running 24/7, everyone gets backed up at different times, and can sometimes be a fer hours different, due to an increase, or decrease of workload.

An example comparing your backup time, being at UK Midnight, I was getting backups at 3PM on the same day back home in Australia, which would be completely different to you at midnight.

However, the backups should only take no more then 5 mins, and an average of 3 mins per forum Wink

Hmm, well good news is, I haven't had a maintenance problem since I posted here. I suppose everything is good now. It was happening for about a whole week before I decided to come here and ask around. I'll keep an eye on the times if this occurs again.

For now, thanks for all the help and support. It's greatly appreciated from the members of our forums!
