Last one for tonight,

There have been a few occasions over the past couple of weeks where i've had a high level of traffic and its caused the site a few issues. The visitor count stopped at something like 699, is that something inbuilt? Can it be/is it wise to increase it?

When the maximum is hit i get a load of emails about the CRON. Although i managed to set up the CRON job, i dont really understand it. Is this a type of error message?

Because i dont really understand CRON i've no idea if these emails are telling me something significant or not. Is it something that needs fixing, or is it just for info purposes?

Well-settled

My version 8.1 had a default Maximum users 100 in the settings.

Admin Zone » Setup » Configuration » Site options  its in the Closed site section.

I have set up CRON jobs as well in the past but just because they had step by step directions. :P I know it does a refresh type or recall to update info so you dont have to manually. That is all I really know. I hope that helps if not maybe someone else can chime in.  

Don't be skeerd its me learning ocPortal.
Take a look you never know what its going to be like.
Here is the box of chocolate link.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
