    I love this place and dont want it to die like other forums, the major reason of this I see is instable web hosting where BHW is hosted, you can see the alexa traffic graph

    http://www.alexa.com/data/details/traffic_details/blackhatworld.com

    all the time I visit BHW, I get "Database Error" trust me I read only 2 topics in last 34 minutes, and now when I tried to post this topic, it took me 7 refresh for this page becuase I was getting "Database error" again, I am not sure if this topic will be post after clicking becuase IA m sure I will get "database error" again, I hope not.

    please move it to some proper hosting becuase we are loosing regulars becuase of inaccessibility issues...

    cheers

    While I think it's a bit reactionary to call "BHW IS DYIIIIIIING! DAMNS YOU ALLLL TO HELLLL!!!" I do share the sentiment that the server problems (or is it more hacking DoS attacks?) are really hurting this forum.

    It's a gamble whether anything will ever load here these days and the problems don't seem to be going away either.

    Yeah, I've been getting the list of page numbers too for a while now. It's not a biggie to me though. I'm sure the mods will get things worked out....

    I have that now for a couple of weeks.
    I have a work-around to view the new posts.

    1.) Start BHW...you get the page with the numbers

    2.) Click on number 1...you get the Download section but as a list not as a regular page.

    3.) Click on Black Hat Forum (left top)...now you get a list with all the menu-items.

    4.) Now rightclick the menu you want...it opens in a new page....still as list

    5. Click the link after "View Full Version"...now you get this menu as a regular page and with the new posts at the start.

    6.) Repeat step 4 and 5 for every menu you want.

    Hope this helps for all who have this problem.

    It's not the host that there's a problem with. The server's been getting DDOSed and there's not much any host can do to prevent that unless one's willing to spend a lot of money. Also, I believe that Trophaeum has been working on keeping these attacks off but we've also gotta understand that it's easier said than done. Let's just hope that some kids find a more productive way to utilizef their time than fucking up servers ..

    I miss the old days where I could just refresh "Home" and see all the new threads/posts as they happened. I got the same problem as neilparnham and nothing I've tried works. I don't think it's my PC, since I've been in front of many different computers and get the same result.

    Mh actually the rank dropping down to 70k alexa is kinda weird.

    Anyways I got the database errors as well, but I think they are working on that (= finding that guy who attacks us :-/)

    I dont hink if the problems I have mentioned are due to DDOS attack, if there is DDOS attack the site wont load.. it seems the database is gettign bigger and hosted on the same server, its alwasy a good idea to host Mysql on a seperate server if its puttign too much load on server..

    and BTW firefox is peice of shit and nothing else..

    Actually all problems are due to hackers and DDos's. Eventually everything will be back to normal again until the next time these fucks come up with something.

    BHW will never die
