MozillaZine Forums Temporarily Offline

Saturday April 26th, 2003

Due to a large increase in traffic in recent weeks, MozillaZine's bandwidth usage has risen dramatically. We're currently working with our excellent hosts, American Data Technology, Inc., to find a new hosting solution that can accommodate MozillaZine's growing popularity. In the meantime, we've disabled the MozillaZine Forums, which accounted for much of the site's data transfer. This should reduce our bandwidth usage and also eliminate the MySQL errors that many of you have experienced recently. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we will endeavour to get the forums up and running again as soon as possible. Thanks to all our readers for your continued support.

the forums were quite slow and buggy (php/mysql error messages) in the last days, so it most likely was shut down because of bandwidth issues, and nothing else... complex forum scripts such as phpBB need tons of resources, compared to most other scripts...

and anyway, the name topic didnt cause much trouble, it cooled down pretty much in the last days, and this was certainly not the reason to shut down the entire board...
