I also notice a lot ofd sluggish response.... BT has noticed it too.

It's common early in the morning PDT say midnight and on.

sluggishness occurs around 3-4pm GMT+10 for me, I assumed it was doing automatic back-ups when the least amount of users were on.

I agree that it’s probably a backup that’s causing the poor response since it keeps happening at the same time of day. The times mentioned is early morning here in the US which is usually when automatic backups run. IOW, nothing we can do about it.

WRT the random log offs, I googled around to see if others have had that problem. Others have and offered the following suggestions:

• When you log in check the "Log me on automatically each visit" box.
• Problem may be corrupted cookies so use your browser to delete all cookies and then try logging on.

That’s it. Bath, what exactly is the problem with search? Seems to work OK for me, and that’s before my account was elevated to administrator.

It's not returning as many results as it should. limited by age or something. Try Henry Morris. I know there were more than one post referencing henry morris.

Logouts seem to be fixed.

In fact, the "keep me logged in" seems to be working!

Three cheers for vms!!!

HH, I was able to log into your account after I changed the password. I was required to enter a confirmation code. Did you see that? It should have looked like this. Anyway, I e-mailed you your new password to the e-mail address listed in your account. If you didn’t get it let me know here.


As for the search problem that Bath mentioned it appears to be a corrupted search index. I tried to rebuild it on the copied SMRT forums on my laptop. Ran for about 12 hours and then aborted with:

General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Incorrect key file for table './wearesmr_phpb1/phpbb_sessions.MYI'; try to repair it [126]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.


Plus the filesystem got switched to read-only mode with this message:

Message from syslogd@ at Thu May 26 05:57:00 2011 ...
localhost kernel: journal commit I/O error


Don’t know if it’s a phpBB problem or that I have the forums running on a virtual machine. Vagon, any thoughts? Anyway, the system was fubar’d so I had to delete the VM and restored from backup.

The search index has two ‘backends’ available, ‘Fulltext native’ which is the default and ‘Fulltext mysql’. I switched to ‘Fulltext mysql’ and did the rebuild again, that worked, and the problem was fixed. So should I rebuild the search index using the ‘Fulltext mysql’ backend?

Not sure to be honest, I think it goes without saying we need to tread carefully if it screwed your VM.
I'd go with the results of your investigation rebuild the index on fulltext MySQL, but as always you'll need to go to PHPMyAdmin and get an export of the DB to back-up in case of failure.

Unfortunately the search index rebuild didn’t work. In fact the search now doesn’t return any posts, sorry. Until a solution is found an alternative is to go to Google and do a site search like this:

henry morris site:www.wearesmrt.com

HH, I tried e-mailing you a new password but the e-mail address you have listed in your account is no longer valid. If you see me (vms) or e-lad on chat, ask us, we have your new password.

The random log offs were gone for the last week...

Now they are back with a vengeance...
