What is going on with this site?
 
I have been unable to access the site from about 1 pm until now (2151)
Every time I try to go to www.nvnews.net it gets page cannot be found. It finally let me on then it was so damn slow it would time out. Happened at work and at home.

Access is intermitent at best, and comming up with "unable to reach host" at worst. I've done a traceroute, and it looks like "Theplanet" is dropping packets on one of their routers: As this is nVnews's host provider, it appears to be an ISP issue. The traceroute is as follows:

Trace complete.

E:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>
Being unable to get into the forum direclty (before when I was able to get to the front page, the random dropping of packets would prevent full browsing down to a forum link; and errored out in browsing links down); I did send an email to what looks like Theplanet's tech support dept, with indication the site is down, and similiar results to the above traceroute (the one above is a newer one made just now). I made it however 5 or so hours ago, and it was after 5 pm EST, so no gaurentees it might get directed somewhere tonight.

Also, I'm not their customer, so they might not want to hear from me... The above is what's happening in the trace however, to the website here.... If they only want to take service interuption reports from their customers (rather then from visitors); the above should be useful info for MikeC, in helping to identify what's going on.

The Internet is a series of tubes...and I plug 'em so good, even Al Bundy would be impressed.

Troubleshooting...

We are receiving the following message from the Apache log: server reached MaxClients setting, consider raising the MaxClients setting. This setting determines the maximum simultaneous connections.

The setting is being tweaked along with changing they way some of the web page images are being accessed.

It seems that if you refer to an image with a URL address (like "http://www.nvnews.net/images/logos/nvnews_forum_logo.gif"), a new connection is created. However, this can be avoided by referring to the image by its relative address on the server (like "../../images/logos/nvnews_forum_logo.gif").

Hopefully it's up for good this time. I almost became a loser and started doing drugs when it was down. :eek:
