Yesterday and Today I've been getting numerous Error 524 and Error 520

When the site does come up it shows an archived front page from yesterday (based on current forum post list)

Are you under DdOS?

I was getting the same error message Vox, also their Cloud servers were giving a snapshot picture of Peakoil.com when one tried to access via URL. As of now 4:29 pm Est. the site seems to be working fine.

Yes. Currently it's up - hence the post.

It's been up and (mostly) down for the past 24 hrs. Some of the Error messages I saw on the Kindle suggest too many connections - which sounds like a DDOS.

Maybe Tech Support has some ideas?

Might be time to sweep for Trojans or Worms

Yeah, I am not a techi but this could be an infection of some kind.

I was getting the same errors already mentioned, plus a 'too many connections (1024)' message,but I am finding the site currently very slow to respond.

Same thing here. Other sites work fine so the trouble seems to be on Peakoil.coms end.
Also getting "You cannot make another post so soon after your last." a lot lately for no good reason.

You cannot make another post so soon after your last.
