I'm trying to download samplepacks 111 and 113... for some reason they just download incessantly and never stop. I can't open them. I have no problems downloading other packs. What's the matter with these? Is there anything I'm doing wrong?
i have download-probs with some sample-packs and believe the server is overload - too bad...i becomes this browser-info:
"phpBB : Critical Error
Error doing DB query userdata row fetch
SQL Error : 2013 Lost connection to MySQL server during query
SELECT u.*, s.* FROM phpbb_sessions s, phpbb_users u WHERE s.session_id = 'c2643ee02cb0e0591fc1e8e420cc4dcb' AND u.user_id = s.session_user_id

yikes, that's gnarly. I've tried 3 different browsers, and on all of them the tube just keeps filling up during download; it stops at what seems like the correct file size (Though the ACTUAL file size is "?") but never resolves into a file on my desktop. So close, yet so far!
---On a related note, everything seems to be working fine now. Just a bit laggy.
could you try again now? the pack (nr 111) is 15MB large so it will take a while
i just downloaded it and it went perfectly OK, so that's a bit weird...
yesterday we had bigtime trouble with the server - but it should be OK now.
that doesn't seem to have anything to do with the file download, but equally bad!
however - with the trouble from yesterday it doesn't surprise me...
if you see it again, please let me know!
cheers both of you
alright, bram ...no problem, it now run...it concerned the big data packs...ciao
Bram, sorry to alarm you about the packs; it did work fine eventually. Thanks for checking it out, though. Next time I'll just have to give it a little longer.
actualy, your question spurred some furious coding from my side, and the packs should now donwload a LOT better. I was compressing them on the fly every time someone downloaded them, and I think this was really killing the server.
Now I'm storing them the firsttime they are compressed, yay, much better
Eek, just thought about a bug: when someone adds a sample to a pack afterwards, I'll have to delete it on the server so it gets rebuilt. Work for today!
