Server Excecutions

Post by SteStory » Mon Aug 07, 2017 6:21 pm

Hi All,

viewtopic.php?f=466&t=2356901

Please see above topic for thread I made on same issue when forum was on 3.1. I've since upgraded to 3.2, but this problem which settled down has reared its head again, not sure why but apparently i'm going over there daily excecution limit yet again!

Apparently they set a limit of 20,000 excecutions per 24h period and in the last 24h my site has excecuted scripts 48064 times.

They sent me a list of the top excecuted scripts, which were:
12492 http://barrowfans.co.uk/app.php
5289 http://barrowfans.co.uk/download/file.php
3993 http://barrowfans.co.uk/viewtopic.php
3132 http://barrowfans.co.uk/viewforum.php
2975 http://barrowfans.co.uk/index.php
1966 http://barrowfans.co.uk/ucp.php

So it seems that app.php and download/file.php are my top excecuted scripts. What exactly are they? Why are they being excecuted so much more than view topic or viewforum for example? Any suggestions?

Regards
Ste

Every attachments and avatars are downloaded throught download/file.php, so for each viewtopic.php execution, you will have an execution for the viewtopic page and one for each avatar.
About app.php, if the requested file/directory doesnt exist, it is loaded throught app.php.

I am looking at your page, and for some reason you have cron.php missing, so phpbb is trying to load it for each page load, that causes an aditional call to app.php

20,000 requests per day is less than 1 request every 4 seconds on average. That's extremely low.
I wrote the thing that does BBCodes in 3.2.
