    Error While Accessing ExcelForum

    Hi,

    Can any one tell me If they are receiving the same error, or am I the only one?

    I remember a period, I think it was last week, that I couldn't access it for most of the day.

    Re: Error While Accessing ExcelForum

    …” Sucuri CloudProxy - Backend Server timeout”….. again Today, similar time 11.00 am , ( German Time )…Lasted about 15 minutes. Seems to be fairly consistent at around this Midday time. Only occasionally had it at other times. No Big deal. Maybe the time some maintenance of the site is done.
    Alan

    Edit: - Also , as always , at this time the forum is very slow by me, and after posting often give this:
    This forum requires that you wait 30 seconds between posts. Please try again in 15 seconds.
    … which can encourage you to try again, thinking maybe the Post did not go through... You should not do this. As then you get a Duplicate Post, the original usually having successfully gone. To check if the original went through, I find it quicker to open a new Tab and re - open the Thread a new.

    . Thanks for letting me know. That is helpful as it is an indication that it may not be just caused by my system.
    . Can you tell me if you have been still having difficulties currently ? I am asking as Excel Forum has also continued to be difficult to access for me Today. And It is also responding very slowly. In fact, after posting, it appears to be quicker to start a new Tab and re-open a Thread to see what I have just posted, rather than waiting for the current Tab to update.

    Thanks
    Alan
    P.s.
    . Possibly if you continue to experience difficulties it may be helpful to Mark the thread as unsolved. This may encourage others experiencing the same difficulty to respond and share their experience,and possibly help to bring the problem to the attention of any Forum Technician or similar person who may be able to help

    P.p.s getting this as well Today….
    The server is too busy at the moment. Please try again later.

    Anyone else??

    Re: Error While Accessing ExcelForum

    Access blocked again usual time. Late mid Morning, ( German Time ) . About 15 mins.
    Usual stuff as already shown in images in this Thread.....
    “........Sucuri CloudProxy - Backend Server timeout
    What is going on?
    I am sorry, but we are unable to connect to the page you requested. It seems that the hosting server (where this site is located) is down and we do not have a cached copy to give to you. Please try again in a few minutes
    .....”

    So i guess no big deal if it is a typical time that some maintenance is done? Might just be good to know finally if that is the case.
    Alan

    EDIT: And very slow just now, also typical at around the "Access blocked" time
