hello,

I just installed the forum and it is extremely slow (meaning it can take up to a minute to load a page).
the iis settings seem ok and the server isn't having any problems.

any ideas as to how this is possible?

Something is wrong with your SMTP settings/configuration.Check Mail.config and make sure everything is ok.
EventLog in Admin section can also help.

It is located in the root of your forum installation.
As i am checking your forum now everything is OK except its slow response.I have had same problem before and it was related to SMTP settings.
Also as error says make sure you NFS is working and is started.

Quote:

To verify Server for NFS startup status:

1. Open an elevated Command Prompt window. Click Start, point to All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
2. Type net start.
3. Verify that Server for NFS appears in the list of results.

2. Type net start nfssvc.



Hope this helps

yes I see it in the new version. I'm going install the newest version of the forum (1.9.3) and hopefully that will do the trick.

Performance of YAF, on same level like phpBB, sometiomes faster. Performance depend from 3 factors. Speed of internet connection. Speed of MsSQL and IIS.
May be SMTP/POP configuration. But it coild be good to know what enviroment do you have. I can help with advise about servers configuration.If it is dedicated server of course.

Good luck !

Hi i'm working on the same problem as limion...he's my collegue

we don't have the nfssvc installed on the server, so we are not able to start it.

I'll gave you the server configuration:

It's a dedicated windows 2003 server SP1 with IIS 6.0. The database is on another server and that's also a windows 2003 with sql 2002.

Sorry for this suggestion,
Before AYF performance, you could try to investigate performance of your sites.

80% of all performance issues is communication between servers
1) Run trace on ASP pages
2) Run counters on servers related to TCP/IP
3) Run profiler on SQL.

... I think that you better then me know how to check performance on servers.

ETC...

Good luck

How much memory is on your 2003 server? What are your IIS Application settings for the application yaf is running in? Do you mean you are running SQL 2000? (Since there is no 2002.)

Yes, indeed it is sql server 2000.

It's a server running on intel xeon quad cpu 3,40 ghz with 3,5 gb ram. There are a lot of applications on this server published by IIS and they are running good. So don't think it's a performance issue of the server.

But meanwhile i worked out the problem. I copied files from a good working forum on one of our websites (jeugd.gent.be) and i adapted the alt.aspx and the webconfig. And it works fine now. So it seems that the way those files where built on the other server was causing the problem. They were a lot of references to files that were located on other servers. Like css-files and images....

Now I have another problem. I work with a database of last year and i don't have the admin password because i'm new in this job. So i want to create another admin user (or can i decode the password of the present admin user?)

Lots of thanks to you guys,

the slow forum is still online, if you are interested to take a view: forum.gentsefeesten.be.

I'm still working on the styling of the good working forum.
