Just clicked on a link to the forum and had to wait for 2 minutes or so for the page to load.

Small hint on Apache side: try to limit PHP memory usage with memory_limit in php.ini.

Had lots of problems accessing the site with TapaTalk this weekend. I did not try the website.

If this is running on windows server and apache 2.0 or 2.2, the directive "Win32DisableAcceptEx" might help.

I notice that AF or any of the other sites hosted on the VPS will freeze me out if I go from one to the other.

It seemed ok earlier, looked at the active topics and such. Later I get an email about this thread updated, click the link in my mailer and it hangs for 2 minutes. Irony I guess. :P

Same here. It has been virtually inaccessible the last two days. Seems OK this evening though.

Dal,
did you check cpu and ram usage logs? Because it seems like a cpu usage spike to me.

It actually seems to be getting worse. Or maybe I'm just timing my visits badly. :)

This is correct behaviour for phpbb - however this did trigger something in the back of my mind which lead me to look at the bots config pages. So I have de-activated all bots/crawlers apart from Google, Yahoo and Bing.

Seemed better initially, but back to the magic timeouts again.

The site was in a nonresponsive state between 14:52 and 15:05 (UK) today. Possibly longer.

It seems to load for me first thing in the morning fine, but a hour or more later or so and it takes ages to load.
