RECENT DATABASE ERRORS Please hang with us!

Postby CaptainScott » Sun Dec 18, 2016 8:08 am

The recent database errors we've been receiving I believe are from high volume attempts to access our forum.

This could be web crawlers bots or even hackers. Who knows.

In the past we implemented what was a reasonable fix.
That fix does not appear to work anymore.

This morning I added code to clear appropriate database tables to allow continued access for the rest of us.

Basically the error will still occur. However at the time of this error occurring it should empty the offending table at the time of the error.

So all you need to do is refresh your browser if you see this error.
You should regain access immediately!


If anyone experiences this could you please drop me a note so I can confirm it works.

Thanks!
Scott

Thank you sir! . . . and I most certainly appreciate your help through this mess!

FYI, last nights change should mask the issue of hung sessions by simply clearing space in the table.

I'm hoping this will prevent the error from even showing itself. :D

OK!

We've gone a couple of days and I have not reset the sessions!
I hope we have a fix!

EE FYI: I currently only remove 50 from the table. Another week or so and if we have no further issues, I'll increase it to 500.
