Errors when postingFollow

So lately the site has been SUPER slow, especially when it comes to posting replies on a thread.

Over the last few days, I've seen delays up to nearly a minute when hitting the Post button. Usually when this happens I get an error page that complains about a Proxy Error (I'm not using a proxy). The kicker there is that the post goes through when this happens. While it's deciding whether to error me out or not, I also can't visit any other Zam page until it's done.

Looks like this has gotten a lot of attention

Anyway I managed to snag the error message this time:

Your bloody server wrote:
Proxy Error

The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
The proxy server could not handle the request POST /fcluster/Post.pl.

Reason: Error reading from remote server


I'm not using a proxy server (do people still do that?) and this only ever happens here, so it's you.

Also ignoring the problem hasn't made it go away.

I'm getting the above error today along with multiple other errors. The site is almost unusable at the moment, sigh.

Thanks, I've passed along these errors to ZAM. They are aware of them and look to fix the site problems at some point.

Probably when the legacy site is no longer viable and corporate says to shut it down.

So... what, 7 months later and it still isn't fixed? lol.

The site still takes ages to load and every other time I attempt to post or edit, I get the aforementioned errors constantly.

What gets me is that it is like clockwork, where the server refuses to respond for ~30 seconds every 5 minutes, like clockwork.

EDIT: And just after posting this, like 5 min later, now it's failing to load the CSS so the actual forums are unreadable gibberish. cute.

This has been reported so many times I lost count long ago. The problem is most likely with the design of the site some where that requires a developer to rewrite code or completely replace it with something else. The 30 second timeout is most likely a query that is stuck and is taking all the resources of the SQL server to process it so we have to wait until that query hits the 30 second timeout in order for it to release the SQL server. This problem has been going on for well over a decade from what I've seen from past double posting. You think it's annoying for you? lol I spend hours on the site updating things and it happens to me many many times in that time frame.

I'll email them again and let them know what's going on, that's all I can do.
