S ... L ... O ... W Site! Very. Very. Slow. Loading!

Postby ReadyMom » Mon Jul 03, 2017 8:41 am

:caution: :caution: I've been having a terrible time getting on the APN site. This is what is slow:

(1) First, it won't even load ... and that's from my saved tab AND from doing a search for APN and trying to get in! It takes several minutes to just get on!

(2) Once I get on, site won't load the Portal or Board Index, when I enter my log-in information. I get this:

(Even when I tried to load this photo, the site just scrolled and did not load)

(3) This is happening on ALL my devices: Lap Top, Phone & Ipad. I have NO problem getting on any other site anywhere else on the net ... including other forums.

(4). When I finally get onto the portal or board index, I click on a topic and again ... it does not load for many minutes or just times out with the 'Problem loading Page' message.

It has taken me until this morning to make this post, and I've been trying, since last night!

I've been experiencing some of the same stuff. For awhile I thought maybe its because Im on the road since Im traveling right now but if you've been having similar problems it might be something with the site. I hope this gets fixed.

Tom posted about this early this morning.
Chinese are attacking with a "denial of service".

Painfully slow for the last three days! I was worried about terrorist activity sponsored by Left and Hillary, thank God it is just the Chinese! Dead serious - when the shooting starts, we will be shooting each other! Swamp

I've been having trouble, as well...site is VERY slow to come up, and when it does, y auto-log-in is not there; frequently, when I type in my login and password, I get "bounced" right back to the login-screen, and when I go to post something, I get a "time-out."

I didn't experience any hacking on any of the other prepper sites - specifically asked for any reports - APN seems to have been targeted .... the SurvivalBoards and Rawles SurvivalBlog used to get attacked almost every major holiday ....

Let's not get paranoid folks. Seems like the "attack" is limited to APN. Perhaps Tom can tell us if it is a server issue?

If the news covers it it will be after the fact . Believe what you want about this cyber attack it is not limited to this sight only .

Glad it's not just me. Last few days It takes 4-5 attempts to even log in. I've always been automatically logged in. Once I get logged in it takes several minutes to even be able to view posts. It doesn't happen on any of the other sites I'm on just here.

This is the only site I have had any problem with. Was about ready to give up on it but thought I'll try one more time and boom, lighting fast this time. I was really surprised how fast the pages loaded. Hope it stays like this.

Same here while it was going on for a few days....

I've got a daily routine of logging into about 15-20 different websites. And then I shop and work through the day on about another 20+ additional websites all over the world....

There was no denial of service on any but this one site......Sounds like it was a local server issue to me. Either that or the Chinese were specifically targeting APN only. :glare: :rolleyes:

It had a ripple effect on other sights . I was told about at the start , she had the info and clued me in . People were worried about the plastic money cards from banks and the stores they used them in . All is well on that part from what i understand . Time will tell if any information may have been stolen .
