Done loads of searching around the forum for this.
Hosts tell me it's always been a maximum of 7 concurrent connections.
Forums going down frequently when it's been busier in the past and not gone down.
No new mods added recently which would cause said issue.
max_user_connections = 7
max connections = 60
Forum is going down with approx 7 people on it.
Using 2 different templates on the forum. 1 is modded, 1 isn't. Although some mods make changes to the default forum files (i.e. above the template level).
Not sure whether I should default the un-modded template and see if this has an affect?
I need to renew my hosting account by the end of Jan so I've only got 2 weeks to sort this out
It's driving me crazy. Hosts have basically washed their hands of it, is their any further information I can ask them? i.e. anything on how they deal with server requests or anything?
Tempted to re-install forum with original template and see how that runs as last attempt before moving to host with no silly max_connection limit.
Any help greatly appreciated, especially as I know this topic has been done to death.
Hosts = flump.net.
