Hi all,

I have been discussing this with Plavt since last week already. I am littlegreenman but under this account I can not post anything and just keep receiving 404s and different errors. I couldn't post for over a week. Thus I had the choice to either walk away from the forum or create a new nick (so pls don't kill either log in because of dupe). It seems to be working now, however I would still like to use my old nick instead with my posts linked to it. If this is not possible, could you pls link my old posts to this account? Thanks.

This happened to me over a year ago, no idea what the problem was but suddenly the original login worked again!

Cheers mate. I don't mind sticking to the new nick but what bums me out is being a newbie again. Could you guys please give me back my chatter status or something or link my old posts somehow? Please!!!! *puppy eyes*

Have you tried setting up another browser fresh (like Safari) and see what happens? If you are getting 404's and such, it occurs to me that you might have a deeply embedded malware problem... lhhosts table or something like that if I remember.

Cheers SE. It was the logon. Ever since I used the new one it works well. I tried changing back to the old one a few times and it isn't working. Certainly not a browser, cookie, routing, malware system as:

a. I tried Safari and Firefox at home as well as IE (vomit) in uni.

b. cleared cookies and cache several times. Also using a different computer at any should alleviate this problem.

c. I used my home connection, VPN connection, connection at uni and all kept producing the same errors.

d. I am using a mac, not much malware around for the mac. Using different computers (also different ones in uni), all kept having the same problems.

Last but not least, I got a lot of error messages from the forum engine actually, clearly indicating mistakes in the forum system using my login which doesn't have to do with my system at all. It all was php errors and I gave copies of the exact errors to JP and Plavt.

So well, econoMIC I am now. :-|

Just lately I have been experiencing something a little strange with the logon. I get the site's home page ok, but when I click on the link for the expat forum, quite often I get 404 but when I again click on the forum link the page boots up rather slowly. :???:

Yeah Plavt, I got the same problem. Once I made it to the forum index for the first time though it goes at good speeds. I keep telling you guys, there is something buggy in the scripts!

And another round of error messages this morning. Guys, I tell you there is something seriously wrong with the php script or sql:

Too many connections might have exhausted the connection pool.

Good possibility. I've had it happen occasionally, but usually just try again in a minute or two and in I go. Normally, I'm logged in once I've loaded my browser the first time (tabs) and it stays there until I shut down.

Yes, the connection to the database will be alive until the user logs off. Site admin can probably set a timeout for each session to have the idle connection cleared . :lol:

Yeah, I got one at around 1600 hrs but went back one page and tried again, logged in okay. Have sent message to Admin to have a look anyway.
