Server load limit. Try later?
I'm regularly getting a board error here that says the server is busy, to try at a less busy time. I get this message at all times of the day, any day of the week. This seems odd as it's usually very quiet here. It's getting hard to connect to the forum. Thought you'd like to know.

edit
Exact message displayed:
The maximum server load limit has been reached. Please check back later once the server is less busy.

I experience this quite often too. Sometimes I have to try more than 10 times from day to night just to post a reply.

I suppose there are something other running on the server making it busy.

Me too, I don't think the site traffice is that high that make it overload, I think other problem cause, please contact your hosting provider and let them fix Smile!

RE: Server load limit. Try later?
It doesn't appear to be a DNS issue. I'm using OpenNIC and CCC. Same results when I connect via Tor. The website itself seems unaffected. Only the forum is a problem. I'm reaching the forum but getting the board message:
"The maximum server load limit has been reached. Please check back later once the server is less busy. "
Are you using any IP blocklists? Do they include Tor nodes?

The problem appears to be fixed. I've had no problems reaching the forum for the last 2 days. Thanks.

Spoke too soon. The moment I say it seems fixed, it starts all over again.

The result is the same whether I use OpenNIC DNS, OpenDNS, or your IP in the hosts file. It is not a DNS issue. Unless the IPs of Tor relays/exits are being blocked or restricted, it is not a Tor issue. I'm not connecting via Tor. My IP is also a Tor exit.

RE: Server load limit. Try later?
This is not a new problem but seems to have gotten worse. For me, longest load limit reached time was more than an hour.

I think, there may be a mybb based solution, http://community.mybb.com/thread-66064.html , but it could also be a busy server, economics, or...
I can't be sure which.

Easy to cap. Posting them is a little more difficult.
