Posts take 20 seconds to submit

Post by amochohan »

I'm running PHPBB 3.0.1 and each time I press submit on a reply on my forum, it takes almost exactly 20/21 seconds before it finishes posting and submitting.

My users are getting more and more agitated and I need a solution.

Does anyone have any ideas?

you are out of date, you should consider updating to latest version which is 3.0.5 as we always recommend keeping up to date :)

Thank you that worked perfectly!

I have just tried to update from 3.0.1 to 3.0.5 using the automatic updater but it doesn't seem to work, ive uploaded the directory which set the board to unavailable as it should - but when I browse to the directory, i just get a blank white page with no content...

As you have no MODs installed follow the next method to update:
  • Upload all new files from a download of the full version, except for config.php, the /images and /files folders.
  • Go to yoursite.com/forumfolder/install/database_update.php
  • Let that run and then delete the install folder.
  • You now have a new up to date board containing all your users and posts but without any MODs that you might have had installed.

Hi,

apologies I do have mods installed - must have misread that in the auto generator somehow? :S

Ive got quickreply, primelinks, blogs and some others including a few that ive written myself to integrate into other systems we use.

Well you can either update to a clean 3.0.5 as Paul described, then re-install the MODs, or use the update packages in succession to go from 3.0.1 -> 3.0.2 -> 3.0.4 -> 3.0.5
