So hey! Ever since I've been able to log on to RAF during the day again (ie the last month or so), I've noticed that there seems to be a period each day during which I'm unable to load the forum (or chat, apparently, as I found out today). It seems to last an hour or two- When I first saw it today it was just about 1pm CST, and it's now 1:55pm, and I've just managed to load the forum again (seems to be working fine now).
Most of the time, I receive a network TCP "connection refused" error. Sometimes, RAF seems to load, but it's exceptionally slow. On occasion, RAF will load but I'll get the 500 internal server error.
I don't have issues with any other website, and it really does seem to happen fairly consistently in the early afternoon (I want to say it's every day, but I'm not sure of that- it's often enough to give me pause, at least).
I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this happening. There's a chance it's a local issue I'm having (something I'm not aware of having to do with the company servers, maybe?), but it feels more like it's a issue with RAF or our host server.
