Timeout when logging on to site.. Any thoughts?

Postby codemonkey123 on 08/5/2008, 1:37 am

Hi,

I did email this in the other day on support however...

Just in case anyone else is having the same prob...

I can log in at work using mozilla and vista windows set up (I hate VISTA)

but when I get home usually about 5-6pm GMT I have trouble logging onto view the site and the forum. I can maybe get in once then after a few mins it begins timeout errors no matter what site page I am trying to browse.

At home I am using Mozilla & XP (I hate XP)

I have tried refreshing etc but to no avail..

Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem?

I did wonder if it might be a traffic volume problem, assuming the US is behind myself by up to ten hours, maybe all my American cousins are hitting the site from 10am ish onwards?

Any thoughts?

Probably not a traffic volume problem. I would try clearing my cache and cookies and see if that solves the problem. You might also want to try checking any firewalls you have setup, could be a conflict in there.

Hi,

Not a cache or firewall problem. Must be volume of traffic. Nearly always occurs from 6-7pm onward GMT. So that means sadly no VCP in the evenings for me. :-(
