    Speed issues resolved. If you are still running slow its not my fault! (or the site broke again).

    Definitely not you my friend. Taking some time for a deeper dive right now. Been pulled in so many directions the last few days so doing what I can. Sorry for any and all inconvenience.

    Even though the speed is back I am digging deeper into the issue to prevent further frequent slowdowns. Please feel free to always ask if there is an issue it won't hurt my feelings.

    Thanks guys, I am rebuilding a few different things on the back end so search may be a little quirky in the meantime along with delays as indexes are recreated.

    I at one point had a cron job set to clear cache, restart services, and reindex the boards once a month at 3am on Sunday.

    Just sayin :cheerleader:

    It is statistically proven that squirrel videos distract the squirrels powering the server.

    I don't think it is likely we will ever be free of squirrel videos.

    Site wise, still tracing through config files. I've made some minor tweaks but nothing I am comfortable enough to say was the problem.

    Yeah but now I can't stop watching the squirrel videos so I am not sure there will be any more progress. I mean I might graduate and get to kitten speed but then I hear kitten videos are more addicting. Then again I rarely watch youtube so maybe I am safe.

    Not just slow, can you say horrible awful snail pace? C'mon folks, get over your squabbling and get Stratics back on track or you're gonna lose it all.

    Thanks guys. Your feedback is very appreciated especially during hours when I am sleeping. Though I am not calling it fixed until I see further stability.
