Are we having connectivity problems?

Postby Icon » 25 May 2016, 13:56

Or is it just my computer? I can access and see Forumosa on my cellphone but not on the desktop. Since yesterday.

Gives me a message: General Error

Can't find record in phpbb sessions
An sql error occurred while fetching this page.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.

I've been getting this error from some threads, but not from others:

General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Got error 124 from storage engine [1030]

An SQL error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact the Board Administrator if this problem persists.

Currently a problem on this thread: http://www.forumosa.com/taiwan/viewtopi ... 2&t=155360

That's using Safari on an iMac. Haven't tried on my phone.

Yes, GenErrs on some threads (newer ones?) not others
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

We're having database issues again. We've hopefully got a more stable solution in place now, and are looking at some other things. You're welcome to check http://www.forumosa.org for updates in case we go down again.

You know you're having connectivity problems when you click on "Are we having connectivity problems?" and get a blank screen. :doh:

Actually today is like normal for me (problems now and then, gone after a few minutes), whereas yesterday every time I signed in I got signed out after a few seconds.

I am sorry about the software problems we have been having lately.

I am thinking of finally moving on from phpBB. Please suggest alternative discussion platforms here. I hope we can make a decision soon and then look to make the changes in the next few weeks.

Here are some platforms that come to mind - any preference or concerns you can share would be helpful:

XenForo - https://xenforo.com
vBulletin - https://www.vbulletin.com
Discourse - https://www.discourse.org
VanilaForums - https://vanillaforums.org
Simple Machines (SMF) - www.simplemachines.org
IP.Board - https://invisionpower.com/forums/forum/311-ipboard

So far I like Simple Machine. Discourse seems cool but its interface and organization is quite a departure from what we have now
Don't confuse me with your reasonableness.

Discourse and Vanilla look the best, but I have no idea how usable they are. It'd be nice to have more colourful skins, whatever software you choose. Grey and brown can be depressing...

Maroon, Gold, and Grey are my school colors. It has been nice that they happen to not be Green or Blue.

Some of thise software packages offer multiple themes. So we can make sure there is more choice on the new platform.
