I think it might have been a database problem. :rolleyes:

Seems to happen quite often on this forum for some reason.

I would like to know what system Fubra are using? It is the most unreliable system I have ever encountered!

I run a LAMP based web service which is approximately the same size and popularity as housepricecrash and do not get anywhere as many issues.

At times I do wonder if this site is earning Fubra so little that they really don't care about it that much?
  • I don't believe that there can be sustainable asset inflation when there is underlying wage deflation.
  • No matter what you choose to do in life, choose to do what you are best at and be the best you can be.
  • Everyone is a vested interest and everything is rigged.
  • Sometimes bubble dynamics just end, people stop believing and what was once a virtuous cycle suddenly morphs into vicious one.
  • The real value goes beyond the money.


I have come to realize that there is widespread belief in a 2015 global recovery.

At this point in June 2013 is clear that there will be no recovery in 2015, central bankers have run out of tools to patch over the structural problems and the can can no longer be kicked.

As we approach 2015 it will be clear that the emperor has no clothes and there will be an economic crash that makes 2009 look trivial.


Note: I was wrong on 2nd May 2012 12:00 - London Top called prediction of London will fall by >10% in 12 months.

It's probably costing them - they sell a hosting platform and it's not a great advert - I certainly wouldn't consider using their platform after my experiences with outages here....

Got a database/SQL error telling me it was my computer that was the issue.

Just to rub it in a bit. Both of our dedicated servers have an uptime of over a year B)


We use http://ovh.co.uk because they are cheap and reliable. That is also the reason we use a linux LAMP stack.

Is it possible it was a server issue at a major hosting supplier?

One of my other favourite sites (army rumour service) went down at and for exactly the same time?
This is the space for the signature thingy.........

Mine do too with the help of K-Splice to update running kernels!

The only major outages I've experienced have been network related, DDoS attacks and so on, which can take time to manage. Thankfully they are rare.

It is also common for data centre sites to have back up power, usually in the form of substantial diesel generators. Loss of power is not an acceptable excuse. Having said that I have hosted at the likes of Redbus Telehouse, which have managed to loose power.

I have not heard of K-Splice before, sounds like it could be usedful if you are using the very latest OS builds. Our systems are running Cent OS 5.x and 6.x, before that we used Suse and Mandrivia.

In the days when I used Netware 3.12 I would have been seriously disappointed to not get several years at a time.

Edit to add: Not much use for a wb server of course.:)

From my experience, if you were logged in, you got that message.

If you weren't, you could see the forum and read the posts, but as soon as you logged in....

A lot of sites have been/are at this moment suffering hacking attacks, both UKpoliceonline and policespecials .com are offline because its so bad, the hackers have got hold of individuals email accounts as well. hackers seem to have something against Bankers.

Surprised Arrse hasn't been taken out as well as this site.
