--- Quote ---Speed of loading pages & of posting.  Thought it was my laptop.  How to explain it . . . ?   Click reply & txt box opens, write reply & push either preview or post & it takes ages or gets 'stuck' half way through, leaving a blank page, sometimes with a header sometimes not. Sometimes it eventually goes through, others not.  Close programme & re-open it.

I'd REALLY appreciate some help as to how to fix this, and also how this might have happened, so I'll know for the future.

As I said, I haven't made ANY manual changes to the forum, so I am super confused.


It sounds like hosting/server issues

Check server logs and any activity stats you get...   

Is cpu High?
Unusual crawling activity?
Unusual increase in traffic?
Unusual messages in the SMF error log?

OK I'll do that when I am home and can access cpanel etc - thanks

The only one I can check at the moment is the SMF error log.

There are a lot of errors, including the following critical error which pops up a lot.
“The attachments upload directory is not writeable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved

(This is where people have tried and failed to add an attachment to their post)

There MAY also we some weirdness going on with directory names where it was /home and is now /home3 or vice versa. Not sure.
