    UKL's very own library.

    Soon, it'll be so useful, it'll be given its own research rating by those that do university rankings.

    Doing my bit, just got rid of 2.5Mb of attachments as I was using nearly 9Mb...
    That won't help though. The problems are because of the volume of traffic, not the hard disk space used :rolleyes:

    That's impressive

    I've noticed that its only when the database is accessed that there are server busy messages... I wonder what database is used? I know access would have a post limit of about 60k before crashing... maybe theres a similar problem with UKL? :rolleyes:

    vBulletin uses mySQL doesn't it?
    I think so.

    Digital Spy, the forum I just mentioned, does, anyway.

    That should deal with it OK, and since it's PHP powered that suggests so. But phpBB for example can be configured for other databases... I'm wondering if it's a different database thats bean configured to work with vBulletin

    Well MySQL can apparantly cope with upto 100,000 connections at a given time, MS SQL Server can cooe wiuth 1 million. I am sure MySQL can easily cope with this. I think things like attachments as Pig suggested probably don't help.

    I am sure must users would rather sacrifice features for reliability.

    I would certainly prefer a straight-forward and simple yet reliable forum to a complicated, feature-ridden one that crashes all the time :rolleyes:

    The server busy message is to stop the server itself crashing.

    Guys, server busy messages are not disk space problems and they are not bandwidth problems. Disk space problems would pretty much crash it entirely and bandwidth problems would just make it appear slow. So don't bother deleting posts or worrying about attachments, you're wasting your time. Server busy messages are exactly that - the server is too busy processing user actions. It's running out of CPU power to actually run the forum software. The only thing that will cure it - besides upgrading the server or changing to less intensive forum software - is using it less. So do what PQ suggests - when you hit server busy messages, bugger off and come back later.
