When did your problem begin? A few weeks ago.
Please describe your problem. There seems to be a timing out issue that manifests itself in different forms:
--Many users report that when trying to get to the URL, "This error (HTTP 408 Request Timeout or HTTP 409 Conflict) means that the server took too long to display the page or there were too many people requesting the same webpage.", or "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage."
--Pinging the site is sometimes up over 100 and often over 200-ms and losing packets. I talked to godaddy about this and they don't believe there is an issue;
--When working on a very long posts, taking about 20+ minutes to compose, upon hitting submit this error is generated: "The website is too busy to show the webpage.", and the entry is lost.
These are issues reported by other users than myself. I can not replicate the errors on multiple OSs, browsers and platforms from multiple connection points I have available.

I would suspect your host Godaddy has issues.

I finally got the error to occur to me while using the board. I attempted to hit post on a reply I was composing and the follow message generated in Firefox:

Code: Select all

The connection was reset
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.
The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make
sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
Any insight you all could lend would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

that is a problem with either your host or your ISP. that is not a phpbb error.
