View Full Version : Website Lockup

26-07-2010, 02:29 AM
Running a new copy of AdultWatch on a VPS with 1024MB of Ram. Currently only have two test videos online.

When I use the porntube downloader, the entire website completely freezes up until the image is downloaded & converted.

CPU stays very very low and have plenty of free memory. I really don't believe this is a resource problem.

Everything appears to be working fine and the video does post... just nothing at all (apache/php related) works while this process is happening. I can login to SSH and view top and hardly any resources are used.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Your server seems to be limiting you to only one connection at a time per ip/session, you will need to consult your server administrator on increasing it.

You website will should fine for everyone else, try loading it on a different computer while yours is downloading.

I don't believe it! That's my problem.

Thank you. I started a video grab from pornhub and then opened a new browser window and tried to connect to the site. No go. Simply would not load.

Then, I tried to connect to the website through a proxy and it came right up and I was even able to view a video while the importing was taking place.

I am using Linode for my VPS hosting. What do I ask them exactly?

It's weird. This only happens when I use the video grabber.
I can open 15 windows and view 15 movies at the same time but can't import one movie from pornhub and surf my site.

I'm not blaming anything with the script, but trying to figure out what to ask them exactly.

Thanks so much,

I contacted linode and they spent quite a bit of time with me. They don't know the cause but it has to be something on my side. They have no type of artificial limits set on the server which makes me really happy.

Anybody has any ideas I'd appreciate it.

ok. Did a lot more testing and I got somewhere.

I don't need to be on another computer or IP address, I just need to open Internet Explorer (or any other browser than the one running the grabber script) and connect to the website. My website seems to limit the number of connections based on browser windows not IP.

This is so odd.

I have the same problem, but with the mediaxxx script. Is there any solution already for this? I am admin of my own server, so any help would be appreciated.

That is your server connection per session limit.

When you open a different browser you get a new session.
