It was home at all time, did not invite any friends, so I think not.

That being said, now that I cleaned up the PHP warnings, I see that we have these relatively often, not sure how to fix that:
[Mon Mar 23 21:05:31.433233 2020] [core:warn] [pid 1006] (99)Cannot assign requested address: AH00056: connect to listener on [::]:80

I did some experimentation with the server:
sudo nano /etc/apache2/ports.conf
--> Replaced "Listen 80" by "Listen 0.0.0.0:80"
apachectl stop
/etc/init.d/apache2 start
Does that change anything to you people?

Seems OK when connecting to the forum's main page, but takes ages to go to other pages from there...

Take care of you guys during these trouble times.

No significant change here. Took me 4 attemps before reaching the forum this morning, and 3 more to post the reply (updating message at each attempt ;) ).

Ok, next time you try and you get a time out, could you do the following:
- Write the exact time when it happened
- What web browser and operating system you are using
- What's your external IP is (so I can check in the logs)

The next change I did was to remove the 'MultiViews' from the VHost definition in apache2.conf and modify the 401/404 error handlers.
Found out that this broke the display of some images... which were incorrect in the HTML, so I fixed that.

If you see missing images, impossible to load files, etc... please mention!

I was optimistic but the connection problem seems to be back again...

Took me 3 times to get to the main page, around 2 attempts to get to this post and then another 2 to reply.

- Time: 21:00 in Japan (13:00 in France)
- Web browser: Firefox (last version) and MacOS Catalina
- IP: 85.203.21.65

Hope this problem will be solved soon.

Carry on Dbug !

This evening I will try to run a disk check, regarding CPU, Memory and Network, we are good (20-60% CPU top, 20-30% memory usage).

If you need a 3rd "timeout" input let me know, I can get all the info tonight.
BTW there are still "loads" of users according to the main page (around 250)

Just to add a feedback:

I don't have to enter my login nor password when I connect to the forum as they are saved in my browser, but since the connection problem appeared, I sometimes get a grey (not the usual blue) board index page requiring me to login...

That's quite weird and I never experienced it before.

Next time it happens, could you take a screenshot and send it to me (mike@defence-force.org)

Sure.

It happened 4-5 times until now, but as soon as it happens again, I'll send you a screenshot.

Update: It looks like there's some corruption on the filesystem, I'm doing some manual backups, then I'm going to run some more checks and probably order a replacement SSD.
