    They can still register fine using FaceBook , Google or Twitter though , I have a VPS with 6GP rams and 4 Cores , Currently i have 30,000 members registered since i started the forum 2 weeks ago , Average users online is 200-750 , Other than the registration problem everything is working fine , I tried File Health Check and there was no problem with the files , Any suggestions ?.

    To add to @Andrej's post... are you using any add-ons that filter/monitor new registrations (anti-spam, etc).... and are they the latest versions?
    Does this occur if said add-ons are disabled?

    Disabling the Add-ons fixed the problem thank you very much! , I know this isnt related to the first post but i have a question about the database , My database size is currently 120MB , But its growing really fast , How large is too large for a database ?.

    When you run out of storage. :LOL:

    The size is not the restraining factor that you will run into... it will be your processing power/memory.

    Try to figure out which add-on it was. There may be a bug in the code and I'm sure the add-on author would like to know about the problem.

    If you require help with an add-on, you will need to post in the dedicated discussion thread.
  8. I think it might have something to do with your MySQL.
