Bandwidth issues - site may go down again

Hi guys

Things never run smoothly :( With our move to the new server we have had some problems chewing up too much bandwidth. We have been given some extra for this month but I have just been told that it is at 90% already and so the site might go down again in the next day or so. I am investigating what is causing this and looks like we will need to reduce image sizes throughout the site. There are a couple of other options we are looking at too. Just wanted to give you all a heads up.

Huge apologies from me, I am sure you are all incredibly frustrated. I hope to have a solution soon.

That's a shame because it's not easy to get a forum running and I hope people keep coming back and trying to get on here because it's a great forum that is really informative.

Hi Holly, this is the second time this has happend. I was uploading photos & the info under the box where you upload the photo says file must be no larger than 10 MB instead of 500 KB. Maybe this has something to do with band width issues?? (Not sure because I am not a tech person!! ;0))

Cheers, Jackie

Hi guys

The 10mb was changed previously so something must have happened and it reverted back, will make sure that is changed. I will test though, despite the 10mb claim you should still be limited to 500kb.

Cheers
Holly
