Website Stability was created by CarlightExpress

Hi all

I've noticed recently that the IFAS website is extremely unstable, a lot of the time I get "Bad Gateway" messages, then a few minutes later the site works again, I get this in work (through US proxy and not through US Proxy), at home and on my mobile so it's not provider specific.

Is there a known issue?

Hi,

I have moved the site to a new setup this morning to bring more stability.
If you are still seeing issues, please tell me but I think the instability issues should be gone

Thanks
Darragh

Coincidentally one of the messages I got earlier was a message from "Nginx" saying bad gateway

Simon,

I used to have nginx reverse proxying to a backend apache instance.
Now the frontend nginx handles all the requests and uses php-fpm for all the php stuff

I saw the Bad Gateway message a couple of times over Xmas but it all came back soon enough.

With the changes you made Darragh, seems that email notification in now turned back on again which is brilliant for me. I rarely load up the website - I just check my email for new topic notifications. Can we please please please keep this going?

Love the new look too by the way. Your (unpaid) work is very much appreciated

Bad gateway happened a few times today, a page refresh sometimes brings it back no problem, but others it takes a few minutes before the site displays properly

Sorry, was missing around with some configuration, have reset it back to the original, so it should be ok now

Since the start of the year I have been finding the forum especially awkward to use on my iPad. Is it possible reset the view of the forum as it was previously in 2013?

Just tried that now myself Darragh and others, the width factor will continue to be worked on so that it will autofit any width and not spill over.

Thanks for modifying the forum to make it adjust to the width of the screen. It is now much more user friendly, and the response times are great. Well done, much appreciated.

Didn't think this was fixed yet, it's not for me, it's probably taking up 50% of my browser width

There seems to be an issue with IE and Chrome as it appears fine in Firefox and Safari, and it's also erratic on the machine displaying it too. I am only noticing the exceeded width in Chrome on the machine in studio tonight (first time in a week I could check it on such a wonky machine), while on my laptop and Mac it all appears fine.

Anyway, as I said earlier, the 'fix' is temporary, but please do report back with any layout bugs you spot. Once I think I have the CSS cleaned up and working, I'll post back here for you all to Refresh (hit the F5 key) your browser windows.

Hi,

Looks like Internet Explorer version 8 and below has an issue with the screen width. The page width extends past the right hand border by a fixed % irrespective of the screen resolution. If warranted you could look at loading a custom stylesheet for IE Versions 8 and below, using User agent detection or IE Conditional comments.

See.. msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms537509(v=vs.85).aspx


F.Y.I

The Current Versions of IE, FireFox & Chrome all look fine on Windows OS.

On iphone5/Safari the site is optimised for mobile screen width and also looks fine.

Keep up the good work ;)
