Makes sense, but assumes you know the whole range and their chronological order, I certainly don't!

The site is coming on brilliantly so keep going!

Tend to agree with Walti, Alphabetical order is logical and easy to use....

Re: I'm working on this site's sibling...

We get a spike in server load at the usual times in the morning (UK time). Yesterday the spike was only of the order of magnitude of 5 but today it was 130, actually higher than previous days when it has been bad.

Bandwidth logs don't show a relationship with the server load peaks so it's more likely to be spurious calls on the PhotoPost gallery by external IP addresses. Unfortunately, the IP addresses are random so blocking them isn't easy. But we will try another layer of server resilience to try to reduce this traffic.

Re: I'm working on this site's sibling...

As this is an annoying issue that has been occurring for a long time now with no signs of improvement, perhaps it may be worth considering hiring an independent Professional IT Consultant to resolve the problem.

Re: I'm working on this site's sibling...

Work is ongoing to eliminate all possible causes of the server load spikes causing gateway timeouts we have been experiencing on almost every morning at approximately 8AM.

Another change to the server configuration was made yesterday.

We also detected two images on the FTU gallery that were flagged as containing malware. The images look innocent, so it's quite possible they are false positives, but for the time being they have been removed.

This morning there was no expected server load spike. It's far too early to celebrate yet, but that has to be marked down as progress.

Is this still happening? JSON code is specific to FTU. It may be a consequence of a gateway timeout.

If it happens repeatedly at other times of the day please let me know, thanks.

Re: I'm working on this site's sibling...

Hmmm - there has been a relatively small spike just now that caused a problem for around a minute - a lot less than before but still needs looking at
