General Error

Post by mbigpops » Tue Sep 04, 2018 12:10 pm

For the past week or so I have been getting a "General Error" when trying to log into Boat Buzz. There is more information after the error that makes it sound like too many users are either logged in or trying to log in.

I am not a General so I am confused as to why I am getting this error. Anyone else seeing this ?

Certainly sounds like an IT issue with a server or something.

Yes I've been receiving the same errors, sometimes after I've written a post and then it cannot be loaded nor saved so I have to wait and write it again once the connection is restored.

I can think of a few times my vintage engine has thrown an "error code" at me too and refused to cooperate but that I can fix. This is a website IT issue, and at least we're not stranded on the water somewhere.

I'm an analog man.

The one I get says too many are logged on. It goes away after a day or so.

We used to have this same issue at WoodyBoater. It was a server issue. To save money the site may be sharing space on servers. When it spikes for any reason, it kicks it off. This becomes an issue and the site should be upgraded or moved to another server host that monitors it better. This can be from all sorts of traffic issues is my guess.

It happened again this morning - before 8 AM consistently which may be when they do maintenance or backups.
