RE: DOS Attack
I posted this in LadyDay's intro thread when she joked that we should pray about it. Since I posted, the site has been running again. If it holds, I'm totally taking credit for it.

And forgive us our typos as we forgive those who typo against us. Lead us not into refreshing, but deliver us from DOSing. For thine is the keyboard, and the monitor, and the forum, for ever and ever. Amen."

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

RE: DOS Attack
I'm ok with you guys complaining and bitching cause downtime is frustrating and it's cathartic to have an outlet to vent.

I can't really blame cloudflare for everything because the issues we are having aren't all caused by that. It's a bit more complicated.

When the cloudflare security setting is lowered it removes the browser check which then allows tapatalk users to access the site again. It also allows through more of the unwanted traffic which causes server load to go through the roof.

Put it back to under attack mode and server load drops again but there is glitchyness.

Try to remember when the ddos started - the site was completely down for a while.

When I first started the server on the new host I installed Munin to monitor what is happening on the server. Here are some graphs which show the ddos attacks over the last week.

The error some of you mentioned is caused by this server becoming non-responsive due to ddos.

Idiot's.... I mean layman's terms? Angel

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
