Just wondering what was the cause of the problem.

JJK

 Russian hackers  were trying to overload the Forum server  --- down to 0 , so you gotta get rid of these guys 1st  to restore  normal traffic   , otherwise it  grinds the forum  down to  a halt , plus there was an update of the Forum software , so securing the database , and then  a transfer to new hardware and  larger data capacity -

The main issue is we are getting a ton of traffic from over 1000 Russian IP addresses, probably trying to DDOS the site. I'm attempting to mitigate. Step one was upgrading the forum software which was about 2 years overdue. Obviously there is more to do.
