Petopia forum very slow..

Unread post by Namárië » Sun Mar 03, 2019 6:05 am

I have experience that petopia is slow, VERY Slow. It takes up to several minutes to load the site and it is very slow to post and switch between topics.

This started monday, and it has just gotten worse. I tried cleaning my cache and tried different browsers but it´s the same across the three I have : FireFox, Chrome and Explorer.

Very odd! It’s working fine for me. I haven’t seen anyone else mention problems so far.

Is there any script blocking addon that you use on all your browsers? Does it still cause issues if you disable all add ons?

Are you using Windows or Mac?
On Windows, if you can open cmd (run -> cmdj and type:
tracert forums.wow-petopia.com

On Mac, go to the Utilities folder and open the Network Utility and go to the traceroute tab, and type in forums.wow-petopia.com

And see if your path to our forum is being blocked at any point.


Other things to try:

Restart your modem.

Run a virus scan.


Sorry, that’s all I can think of right now, as it’s working fine here.

Windows and the only addon i got is Ab blocker.

This is what the trace gave no idea what it means. It is only petopia I got problems with. .all other sites works just fine, and its´on my stationary computer AND my cellphone.

Hmm, those values don't look too bad to me. The fact it's happening on all your devices is really strange.

What board theme are you using?

Is https://www.wow-petopia.com or https://www.warcraftmounts.com also slow?

The only other thing I can think of is that you have some board preference set that is uncommon and causing errors, but I can't see anything weird in your settings. There's also nothing in the error logs.

I wish I could think of other things to try but nothing occurs to me at this stage. Hopefully it'll correct itself, but if it's still an issue in a day or so please let me know and I'll speak to Jon, our server guy, and see if he can see any issues in his logs.

ehmm standard.. I havent tempered with any board theme.

I dont use the warcraft site or the main petipoian website but I checked and both load faster than than this site.. I havent got any solution to it either and it is weird that it is only this site I got problems with..


edit took 14 seconds for it to submit this message before the edit... it is not a big lag but its longer than any other site.

It slows down for me too at certain times of the day, it's 12:30am P.S.T. and it takes the site around 20-30 seconds to refresh the active topics page, normally takes about 2-5 seconds. :| Not sure where the site is hosted, but it may be on a server with another site that gets a lot of traffic around that time. :| :mrgreen:

I don't see this problem ever :/ At least, except for the occasional one-off net glitch. I'll have to get advice on it.

That's 18:00-22:00 my time. I don't have any issues around then but I'll look into it.

What's the weather been like in your area lately?

Whenever I'm experiencing strong winds or rain and thunder storms (like I am now), my WiFi goes a bit wonky and I experience tons of lag with longer loading times, errors, and crashes. I don't get snow where I live, but I'm sure that would have an effect on me too if I did.

Probably not related to what your dealing with but I thought I'd bring it up as a side note.

Does your modem have a cache you can empty?

I have not experienced any issues with slowness on the site, but I did just get this error page a moment ago, it disappeared on a refresh, so I don't think it's anything to worry about but just in case it was useful for another reason:

Sorry, I was just moving the database, you happened to refresh during the ~10sec window when I had it down. I'm hoping with the database moved over, it will fix this slowness issue.
