Let it be known that the Error 500s had been existing for over 2 years.

I'm gonna fight for a refund on hosting fees for a big chunk of that time. Wish me luck, and again, welcome back to a restored site. For the first time in two years apparently...

We seem to have restored the topnav and Avea features! Aside from a bit of cleanup here and there to go along with it, I think we're finally back to the point we were uhh... *cough* Two years ago >_> Sorry guys, my host is filled with dumbasses. It was all on their end and you can BET that I'll be fighting for a partial refund of service time...

Could mirror the character parts of the image..?

So, they finally pulled whatever magic lever they needed to pull in order to get my site functioning again on the backend. From everything I can tell, we're good to go moving forward here. Addons such as the chat room have been restored.

Avea Media Gallery has not yet been restored, as well as the top nav tweaks, but everything else should be fixed up. If you run into any strange errors, please don't hesitate to speak up. I'll be keeping an eye on things, and while these last few pieces may be slow to restore, at least we finally have the chat room back, and possibly even fully functional! :3

Thanks for sticking with the site for these last few years, and believe me when I say I'm going to chew them a new asshole later this week. >__>

They finally did some real technical work on the server. Dirty slow bastards. I am a bit optimistic. I just loaded a topic with 3 attachments. It didn't break.

So.... I'm going to bring back in the various addons now and see if it continues to hold.

We have a contest winner here. ;3 How long until that contest ends, btw?

Annoyingly enough, their customer support has been absolutely crawling when it comes to their 'latest' responses. The quality of their replies is going even further down with lines such as 'couldn't reproduce the issue'... Nevermind the fact that I barely visit and I get the Error 500s most times I come here.

I've stripped out some php with another site I run (thx to a friend) and even with that stress removed from the server, the frequency of the 500s hasn't dropped in the least. With this forum basically running vanilla, and the media gallery shut down (even temporarily), it's awkward how frequent these error 500s are, to the sense that this CANNOT be through the fault of my webpages. I have nothing on my server that should be resulting in such a heavy load, and we're talking even basic scripts are resulting in these memory shutdowns. X_x;

For reasons I was not informed of, he edited out all of his stories and attempted to vanish fully. I am concerned. :(

Normally we have an addon that explains that you have to have made at least one post to access certain other areas of the site, but because we're running default forum for the moment to try and troubleshoot some performance issues, that particular addon isn't currently active. You should be able to access those sections now, however.

Still trying to debug this issue.

https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=337407.20

Found a topic from ~10 years ago that talks of an identical issue, with the user returning to say that the host itself had somehow misconfigured its php systems after its upgrade. Thing is, they DID do a php upgrade around the time, so I've asked them to look into that.

In the mean time, I bumped the php.ini and index.php settings to have a 256 php memory allocation. Whatever that ends up doing. I did a stress test regardless and ended up still getting it to break, but it may have at least alleviated it slightly. Maybe I just have some weird bit-rot going on on the side of the server. Who knows. :< Just an update to let you guys know I'm still trying to work on it.

Yeah, 3 at 0:50. :)

Huh. It's the actual stereotypical butterfly sneeze. I really do wish I could trace the origins of that trope, haha.

14
I agree wholeheartedly. :)

Updated with the Chapter 4 Manectric for Japanese version.

Given that I also have monthly costs related to the domain, and a few other domains, even $10 a month is pushing my budget higher. I am fairly sure that the two years I bought most recently with Lunarpages was at a $7 a month pricepoint.

In any case, there's no huge hurry, as I'm still giving Lunar a chance to actually figure out what's fucking me over. Gonna keep talking to the contact I have, as he's a fairly decent dude, and if that falls short of being usable or affordable, I'll look deeper into Gator. Have to try to get my money back with Lunar as well, though, or the next year of hosting had better be at a price point of $0.00/mo. *paid through another 12-15 months at Lunar atm. >.>*

Currently in talks with someone in the fandom.

And yeah, shared hosting is kind of a requirement in the sense that my budget is extremely small for this stuff. I appreciate what is given by those donating, but donations would probably have to double in order to move to another step and I can't really justify asking that of people when I'm as hands-off these days as I am. x.x;

As for the first bit there, yasl, it's them trying to problem solve things, they 'ran a malware scan' on the server, it 'returned' a few random php files including a fair number from the cache folder, and some tool I use (also php) on another subdomain that's been the same set of files unmodified for many years. So I don't know what they're thinking they're finding, but removing and replacing as-per-relevant with every file mentioned resulted in no improvement at all.

The bottom line is that ever since we did the beta thing, or hell, was it even doing it back then or only a little ways after putting it live? And it's gotten much worse since then. Even running vanilla here, things break if you as much as open a few tabs to the site. Yeesh. XD

I'll keep HostGator in mind; would I get the Cloud Storage step or the regular web hosting step? And if Cloud Hosting, would I get 4gb or 6gb ram? I have to have unlimited domains no matter what I grab, so I can't get the lower options. >.<;
