It isn't that it is shut dow but that is the time when there is some automated maintenance and we are taking our nightly backup. The result is that there is some heavy processing going on and during that time access is almost impossible or at best - very slow.

 

Very sorry that you are inconvenienced. I don't think that there is much we can do.

The real reason is the Taskmasters that we are, we only allow the Hamsters 30 mins break every 24 hours. During this itme they are permitted to leave their wheels that keep the site running and to rest, eat and pee


PLEASE HELP US TO KEEP THIS SITE RUNNING

EVERY POUND DONATED WILL HELP US TO KEEP HELPING OTHERS

It's a simple forum running a MySQL database. a backup won't stop the site from running, and there is little maintenance to do on a MySQL database. The little maintenance to do would take seconds to complete.

 

It sounds like issue many shared webhosting platforms have which is they all usually restart servers every night.

It's a database backup - we take one each morning at 4am. It causes each database table to be locked one by one, and that's what causes the slowness. We had hoped that nobody would be around at 4am.
