Why is the wiki using so much data?

I wish I knew why it was.

Wiki is far far easier to use.  Esp for new players.  Why is the wiki using so much data?

Like I previously said, this forum setting bars it from google grabby little crawlers. Which means that as far as the world concerned all the info about the game (tutorials\change logs\etc) found only on the wiki, and this is where everyone are directed at. So the wiki is using soo much data because Aurora is soo popular and the wiki is the only site on the tour guide...

I assume that the sever\bandwidth can't be upgraded, but this might be addressed though the use of cache servers. Depending on how much traffic comes this way, there might be free solutions for that.

I've updated that, along with adding a sitemap. So in theory, things should appear on google, etc.

Great news for me, since I prefer using google search in most cases, but overall I doubt it will do much to address the issue at hand. Since the forum\wiki are hosted on the same sever it maters not how you balance he access traffic, it will choke anyway.

My first return visit here since mid December, and I'm getting 500 internal server errors on just about every thread I open,  hit back, give it a second and try again and it usually works

errors I'm getting

Code: [Select]
Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 786432) (tried to allocate 196608 bytes) in /home/penta6/public_html/aurora2/Sources/Subs.php on line 1760
Code: [Select]
Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator at webmaster@aurora2.pentarch.org to inform them of the time this error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
The boggosity of the universe tends towards maximum.

Just here to second what boggo2300 said.   Every time I load a page in either the forum or the wiki, I'm getting the Internal Server Error.   Refresh the page, it loads.   It's been doing it for the past couple of days.

^ this is due to peek hours usage. During the holidays Aurora got a lot more exposure than what the server can handle.

While the issue mentioned by the OP, is most likely an configuration issue or an evil plan by the host.

A new occasionally forbidden word joins the club. "ha ving" (no space)
I was stumbled when I couldn't find any of the usual trigger words in one recent and short post. After some back and forth, the error vanished when deleting the word, though I am sure I have used it other place often enough without causing any 403.
Well, in this case not even the cursive method helped. I had to change it into "to have" to make the post work.

On other accounts, without this incident, I didn't see much 403s for a long time.

The 403s seem to have been usurped by the out of memory and 500 errors.

Perhaps we need to download more ram?

Indeed it is, and I can now use google (and its cache) to find things on the forum without having to stumble into host of errors  ::) However, I am bufleld  by the fact that your change caused this to be no longer the case for the wiki.

...
You got lucky. I have had the pleasure quit often this week, ironically most recently it was while trying to quote your post...  Overall, it makes no sense, its like the host is playing a hat tick, pulling random words... how can he not notice the issue and fix it?! that or he is an evil genius  ;)

All of the words that have been triggers have been SQL keywords.

On a side note, the host suggests that I optimize images and consolidate CSS files. What. The. frakk.

On a second side note, I am now shopping for a domain host after 10+ years.

Bit of trivia... There has been ~450g of bandwidth HTTP transfer. Since Jan 1. If this keeps up, I'm looking at 2-2.5tb transfer/month.

This is what I am looking for from a host.

Domain requirements
•   10+ gig storage
•   2tb+ bandwidth
•   MySQL
•   Php 5.5+
•   Subdomain support
•   Domain/subdomain forwarding
•   Unlimited email accounts
•   POP3 and webmail support
•   FTP/SFTP support
•   Shell access

This should cover everything I have at the moment.

.... I know the forum activity exploded but that still seems excessive considering this is still a fairly small forum.
But images are a problem, even if spoilered they're always loaded. Perhaps SMF has a setting that might help somewhat, maybe storing and loading a small thumbnail unless clicked on ?
