Bandwidth Limit Exceeded


Recommended Posts

Today I got this message when I tried to log in:

Bandwidth Limit Exceeded

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to the site owner reaching his/her bandwidth limit. Please try again later.


Apache/1.3.33 Server at www.glutenfreeforum.com Port 80

From what I understand, the bandwidth limit can be reached when there's a large amount of activity--is that the reason or is there another one? Thanks, Scott-- I just want to know if we're getting so popular that this might become a problem :P:lol: or if there was some construction going on with the site or something--thanks.

There has been a lot of people on this site lately, more than usual (Which is a good thing!). Maybe there was just too many people trying to log on or trying to download the page.

I have had trouble lately, but assumed I had caught some spyware until I checked and found none. At times, it has been so bad that my system appeared to lock up and I had to reboot. Good to know we are that popular, but I hope it does not get worse.

It must be my fault. Since I was diagnosed, I have been recommending this site to everyone in my family. And I come from a large family! :lol::P:D

Hi Everyone,

There was a technical problem with the board on the 2/28/05, and it was down for a few hours. Sorry about that. It has been worked out and I am told by my System Admin that it should not happen again. Please e-mail me with the info at celiac.com address if you ever see this problem again.

Take care,

I recieved this error today:

The error returned was:

Sorry, the board administrator has enabled search flood control. Please wait at least 20 seconds before trying again.

Also have been having trouble if I log in at a computer that I haven't been logged into for a while. I put in my username and password, push send and it doesn't log me in. I have to go through the steps a second time before it will let me in. Weird.

Oh, I get that all the time...I open too many topics and post too quickly. I just wait ten seconds or so (since you don't really have to wait 20) and then refresh/reload the page.

I think that might be some way to keep people from posting too much too fast...so that, I guess, if there was someone spamming the boards, they'd get tied up every now and then if they tried to post too much too quickly.

I just saw the end of your post about logging in--hit reply, and got nailed with flood control :lol: ...it doesn't bother me...I'm used to it:

Sorry, an error occurred. If you are unsure on how to use a feature, or don't know why you got this error message, try looking through the help files for more information.

The error returned was:

Flood control is enabled on this board, please wait 30 seconds before replying or posting a new topic

That happens to me too. At home, I have my log in remembered, so I can just pull up the message board and start posting, rather than log in every time. At other computers, though, I have the same thing happen. I enter my username and password, click log in, and it takes me to the main page without logging me in--I'm still a guest. Then I log in a second time and it works. That isn't too big a deal, either...just a minor inconvenince :)
