XF 1.1 Just upgraded from Beta 3 to 1.1 and my site is SUPER SLOW


Active member
So, I just updated from Beta 3 to 1.1
I reverted all of my outdated templates (about 12 of them) and then put some few edits back into place...

Now my forum is loading SUPER SUPER SLOW, about a 15 second load time, and I even got the "Unexpected Database Error Occured" one time

Any ideas?

Note that my other site on the same server loads up perfect still

That sounds like a load issue on the server - how does that look? Any errors in the server error log of interest?

I didn't check that yet, but will shortly..
However, after about 10 minutes everything has seemed to clean itself up

Okay, I just saved a template edit and then clicked to go back to my homepage on admin CP and refresh on my main site..

I got the Unexpected DB Error on the front end again, and on the Admin Side I received this:
An exception occurred: Mysqli prepare error: MySQL server has gone away in /home/freesty/public_html/thefanatic/library/Zend/Db/Statement/Mysqli.php on line 77

That's a server issue.

You need to contact your host to see what the cause is if there are no logs.
