    It is possible we might be doing a bit more work on the server tonight.

    The server load got high again for the second time today and eventually came down. Looks like I am going to get a little further behind on emails but I will get to them.

    We had data base errors two more times but the server didn't go down the last two times. We will figure out what is going on :(

    Had a similar problem at work the other day. Turned out it was automatic updates that were the cause ... don't know if that's relevant/helpful

    That shouldn't be anything affecting the server. It looks like the forum is using a lot more resources right now.

    We actually had a lot more active users before the forum move than we do now.

    Would I be right in thinking this was Manix related or is it just coincidental that it fell over after photos were posted (albeit a couple of hours after)?

    I would say it was coincidental. We have had I think 8 server crashes after upgrading to vB 4.0.6. I don't think that 4.0.6 is actually creating the problem itself but something that happened during the upgrade.

    You could say that. I was getting the following most of last night and all of the morning over here in the UK, as an error mesage through the Open DNS system...

    Hope it helps you cure the problem.

    The problem isn't DNS related. We are maxing out the CPU.
