Server under stress
« on: Tuesday 20 December 16 10:58 GMT (UK) »
Is it my end or is it a Rootschat thing?

If I try to read New Replies I get "The server is currently under high stress. Please try again shortly." However, if I then try Unread Posts I can read and reply to them as normal.


Added: I see that Wiggy has said she has the same problem, so not just me!  ;)

Maybe it hasn't finished it's Christmas shopping, or maybe it has the entire Server family coming round for Christmas dinner.


I'll get my coat ::)

Hi Groom,

Occasionally we get this message when the RootsChat server is a little busy, hopefully it is ok for you now.

Regards

Sarah :)

Hi Sarah

No, it's been like it since late last night. Usually when that happens I can't get into the site at all, but this time I can get in via the Unread Posts. I see from the Global Galah thread that Wiggy has the same problem. We both use Macs - that hasn't got anything to do with it has it?

No groom, I am having the same message appear, but everything else works fine. The Unread Posts are available as normal, so I don't think it's your pc or operating system.   ;)
