Well, as you might know, the site ran into quite a bunch of issue these days, including PHP-FPM starting to ramp the CPU up to 100% for no reson, so this morning I upgraded our LAMP stack to newer versions, including PHP 7.1 (which should be faster than our old PHP 5). We also enabled Cloudflare for additional speed and to mitigate a possible DDoS. For admins, the IPs should still be properly shown in the forum logs. So, as this was a pretty major change, if you run into any issues, please contact staff and we'll look this up.

I was starting wondering if we were being DDoS'ed or something. The site was brutally slow earlier and crashed on the 3rd page load or so

Yeah, seems I fixed it when I added some Cloudflare, which does mean the load became a bit too high. I noticed a lot of requests on this thread, though.

The topic name reminds me of Elon Musk's rapid unscheduled disassemblies.

Oh, by the way, the only issue we had with PHP 7 is the URL shortener, it used one function that was removed in PHP 7. Not bad.

On a side note, we got 488504 forum page hits on that day, compared to 16000-25000 a day. I think that we were not only having issues with our server config, but the forum might also have been victim of a direct DDoS attack.
