I wondered is the server was able to work with compresses files, so I set our forum running  uncompressed files, and it does seem a lot better, it could just be a coincidence 

if running your forum is running faster with "Use Output Compression" to No Output Compression

then the server your forum is running on is to slow and overloaded and you will need to ask your host to move you or find a new host.

It's happening yet again and driving myself and my forum members crazy.
the forum for no apparent reason starts crawling along 20-30 second loading times and sometimes far longer.
The Web Site on the same web space is working at full speed as are all other programs and web sites I subscribe to.

it's the weirdest issue I have had with the forum.
Is it a browser issue? or perhaps cookies causing this massive slow down.
rebooting my router has helped once or twice, but as a fix it is not, and it does not impress my fellow forum members a great deal.

help please.

Hi trekwebmaster

web pages loading is not the same as a forum page loading the web page loading is more just loading files off the server from the hard drive with really no processing from the CPU
but when a forum page is loading YaBB.pl and some more parts of yabb do some processing from files on the server and compiles this/"processing from the CPU" into a page stream and sends this to your browser so on a server where there are more than one website processing scripts you will see processing scripts slow down and this is what I think is happing with your web site.

you can go into admin > Advanced Settings >  Advanced and look for
Run Board in Debug Mode? and set this to: Use Debug Mode - only Admin sees output

and check what is taking up all the load time.

The problem seems to have sorted itself for the moment, I'm still none the wiser to what caused the slow running, perhaps as xnoddyx says just server traffic?

Thanks to xnoddyx for his help.  Smiley


yes I think it is just server traffic and it is cool  Wink

For the past few days the forum is intermittently slow, and I mean abnormally slow, it is taking around 30 to 40 seconds to load or change between posts.
Some members report no problems and others also complain it's slow.
late last night it started working fine again, and today it's back to crawling speed.

Anyone got any ideas what is causing it?

it may just be server load as if you are on normal hosting there will be more than 20+ websites on that server it may also be items like the size of the .htaccess
or banning files if you pm me admin login for the forum I can have a look for you
and run some speed tests for you.

also how many members have slow loading and are they with the same isp?
