GameDev Server Errors

10 posts in this topic

Is it just me or are others receiving driver errors and server down errors a lot recently?

I usually get a few minutes of Pacman, followed by an SQL driver error until the forum is back up.

Every single day at 3:30pm Melbourne, Aus time, GD.net goes down for me -- Pac man, then SQL errors.
Until recently, it happened at 4:30pm -- did daylight savings time change in the US recently?

all this is pretty annoying IMO...

better to have a site that doesn't periodically die on everyone...

Well.. yes.   I can verify that this is indeed better.  rolleyes.gif

 

It happens at 12:15 AM-12:45 AM EST every day.  I'm not entirely sure what is causing it yet.   My guess is that it is caused by a backup of our servers by our host as they do a full image backup each night.   The thing is that it is so consistent with timing that it has to be something scheduled.. but cron jobs don't seem to be giving any clues.    I'll keep looking for answers of course.
