Help! SuperSearch seems to be down ...

Post by Spiril » Mon Dec 05, 2005 10:01 pm

What to do if SuperSearch seems to be down:
If you are unable to connect to SuperSearch, it might be due to one of several reasons.
Please read through the following steps, before posting a SuperSearch downtime report to the forums
.


Step #1: Check the news section on the NewsLeecher frontpage.
Check the news section on the NewsLeecher frontpage, to see if it says anything concerning SuperSearch downtime.


Step #2: Wait 20 minutes time, and see if SuperSearch is up again.
Occasionally SuperSearch is down for a shorter period of time because the server needs to be restarted, upgraded, etc.


Step #3: Again, check the news section on the NewsLeecher frontpage.
It might have been updated since you checked 20 minutes ago. ;)


Step #4: Make sure you aren't able to connect due to a "known" problem.
Our forum moderator, Smudge, has written a small guide concerning known issues, that might prevent you from using SuperSearch. Read it here.


Step #5: Post a downtime report.
If you have waited around 20 minutes, checked the news section, read through the SuperSearch 'issues guide', and you are still unable to connect or use SuperSearch, you might want to post a downtime report to the NewsLeecher forum. Please post the report in this specific forum topic, by using the 'reply' button, instead of starting a new topic.

Best regards,
The NewsLeecher Team.

Supersearch down for almost two hours.
It seems that this practically always occurs in weekends.

I hope it will be solved soon.

It works again. Quick response.

SS down for almost 3 hours.

Post by wive43 » Sat Jan 21, 2006 7:22 pm

And again it is weekend and SS is not working well.
The indexing turnaround time is 176 minutes.
Well creating NZB in www.binsearch.info is an option to solve the problem.

Fact: Beer really does damage the memory center in your brain! :shock:

Anyway, just like last weekend, I forgot to restart the indexer after having performed a cleanup on the SuperSearch server.

Please give it 20 minutes to catch up from now.

Since I can do searchs normally, I would hazard the guess that Super Search is not down.

If I had a really good tagline, I would put it here.
