Are the slowdowns network or does the caches needs to cleared?
I'm looking at both right now, just submitted a ticket to our host provider to monitor for any suspicious traffic that could be overloading our server. I'm also clearing out some unused sessions so it doesn't bottleneck the database connections.

WordPress? See if they offer a compression program, and caching one to speed it up?

I can look this week to see what I have on my WordPress site. I think it's Rocket and a couple other things.

We had a bot post the other day, not sure if you saw that or not.

Yeah that one got through, most of the time they are normally flagged for mods to review.

We use Xenforo, not Wordpress for this site.

Really slow. Probably just the NSA. :rolleyes:
It’s probably the CIA because of all the off topic FJB posts. 😬
I'm not aware of any of us but myself being on a list. I can ask around but to be honest, the U.S. gov't doesn't give a shit about anyone on here.

Id be worried about personal payment information being compromised at this point. Someone needs to analyze the network traffic, make sure the servers hosting are patched. Something going on for sure.
Any website that wants to store credit card information better be PIX OR PICO compliant. No CC data is stored on this site, third party processing takes care of the subscriptions. They are PICO compliant.

The end termination for the site is:
NetRange: 142.250.0.0 - 142.251.255.255
CIDR: 142.250.0.0/15
NetName: GOOGLE
NetHandle: NET-142-250-0-0-1
Parent: NET142 (NET-142-0-0-0-0)
NetType: Direct Allocation
OriginAS: AS15169
Organization: Google LLC (GOGL)

Trace complete.


I have done a review of the network traffic. There is a slowdown in a few of the hops, that's something that the host and ISP will have to resolve, @HellcatFan already is handling that however I did a site profile. The site is DoS itself. You have a few redundant calls.

This endpoint is taking the server and bending it over. Not to mention there are multiple redundant loads of images:

I'm not saying these are the issues but fixing this might go a long way on server response times. The header was loaded more than 20 times easily.
