The licence was for cerb not lyla so they have to re-issue me a license apparently for lyla.com ... hopefully Monday.

Default Connection failed. Error #0.

For the last two or three days I've been getting the subject error message... It used to work well. Is it just me?

Default Can we get an update on the Chat Room Problems

Hi Mod

could you update on the Chat room problem.
Do you know when it resolved.

Also can you explained why Cerb has been having problems last week?
With the site being busy or in maintenance mode?


thanks

I think it is a combination of things. I am not 100% sure yet what is bugging out the chat room. It's a trial and error situation and since it happens sporadically I am having a hard time pin pointing the problem. The chatroom runs on red5 now as well as java (tomcat). I suspect that when people log out the server is trying to keep the stream alive still (not dropping it) and this causes zombie files to accumulate and they use up resources. I have the chatroom now auto logging out the members who are inactive (in hopes this forces the system to drop these zombies.

Also, I think one of the memory boards on the server may also be bad. I an running diagnostics now. That also could be the issue. Plus the server is a few years old now running under pretty high loads 24/7 it may just be time for a new server. They really only last a few years when you demand this much out of them.

I am working on it. For precaution I have the red5 and tomcat restarting themselves by crontab every 12 hours so if anyone is logged into chat and gets booted with a lost connection it could just be that.

If you try to log into the server and it says the server is too busy it could be zombie files from the chat room, it could be too many people logged into the server at that time and it could also be a DOS attack on the server (I have software that combats this but that can even be overloaded on a strong attack).

When my laptop version of Java was up graded last week I got hit by a Trojan that seemed to freeze up my laptop when I was logging into chat. java seems to be so exploited now.

The "Java" on your PC is for "Javascript" it's a universal cross platform client side script that allows you to basically download into your computer a JS file or embedded javascript code from a HTML file and it instructs your web browser to call up the java in your computer and execute those commands from the javascript your browser received. Basically your computer does the work and most devices can run javascript so it makes it universal.

It's confusing as we have MANY different types of JAVA.

We use JAVASCRIPT here on lyla.com as well for some stuff... for instance the shoutbox, the banner rotation, the resized images on posts that you can click on, etc...

The chat room is a different kind of JAVA. It is a server side Java (Java Servlet / Java Server - run on Apache tomcat). Similar... but not the same thing. Basically its a web server running within a web server but on a different port and does things a standard HTML webserver can not do. In the case of the chatroom we have MULTIPLE technologies working together to make it work and THREE different servers (all on the same computer) running the beast.

1) We have the HTML web server called APACHE (this is what serves the pages of lyla.com. It takes care of the HTML and when a php script is run it serves the output to your webroser in html. It also allows your web browser to download javascript and css so that the pages work and look nice.

2) For the chatroom we have the RED5 server (Or FMS server) this is a FLASH BASED MEDIA server that controls the video and audio feeds.

3) Also for the chat room we have the APACHE TOMCAT JAVA server. It controls the text chat.

So in order for the chatroom to work all three servers must be up and running and bug free. This is not an easy task. When it works it works amazing but a lot can EASILY go wrong.
