PHP programming needs far more education than admin tasks. In order to attract those rare talents, I think you should make that:

"Starting salary will be twice an admin's salary."

I think it depends what the admin salary is. If the money is good enough... you'll attract people.
So... how much are we talking about here? Or is it a secret?

Well, looking at L19's revenue model I doubt 1X or 2X matters... :D

I...I can't tell if this is going over people's heads or everyone is just in on the joke... Do I speak up and try to help? Or am I just making a fool of myself?!

Heh :-D I’d also at first thought about that joke but then thought I’d faintly remember some donation request and poll about how to use the donations, and I (just as faintly) remembered that there was some talk about a beer and a pizza or something for the admin ;-)

<edit>

I mean, IF it was that certain number then JB could have offered triple the amount, no?

</edit>

It is only double. We're saving the third beer as a performance bonus, to be awarded if the programmer actually fixes the 'connection timed out' bug.

but is this a php bug? or a sql db bug? (or some combination).

personally, I suspect the database.

That's always been my suspicion, too. That and/or some combination with the datacenter and how they admin the db server(s).

As said, if you're getting a 552 error, there could be many possible reasons as the server is rejecting the connection mid-request. Anything from a DB issue, PHP, http server or even a cron job could be an issue - so I would recommend perhaps changing your request to a LAMP developer (assuming that linux, apache, php and mysql are indeed the technologies being used here), in order to find your successful candidate more easily. Good luck!

I am no expert in this area. But has the admin checked the log files? There must be some clues in the log files.

I have experience in coding PHP, but I can't commit because I'm currently under contract.

If theres anything I could help (coding questions), don't hesitate to ask me. :study:

If style in need hit me up. I of course also work, but can help a bit in the weekend.

The 552 relates to server setup mostly. Might also be a bit of a phpBB clunkiness issues.

What version of phpBB is this?
What version of PHP and MySQL are you running on?

I have noticed some Wordpress installations getting flacky since PHP 7. The reason is that PHP has been a mess regarding database connection types; mysql, msyqli, mysql_pdo, mysql_nd. It's confusing. (I think mysql_nd is actually a driver, not a connection type). They have been deprecating and (re)introducing new extensions and drivers. "mysql" has been dropped as an extension in PHP7.

Wordpress supports all of the extensions, and many PHP versions. What is now happening, is that Wordpress tries to connect to the database, and if it can't because the extension is not loaded, it moves on to the next one. First, this makes Wordpress VERY slow if it doesn't connect on the first try as you have to wait for the timeout before it tries again. Second, on some servers, connecting again and again is not allowed, and then timeout errors will occur.

Maybe your installation of phpBB is facing a similar issue; trying to connect multiple times, using different database extensions, with the server at some point just dropping the requests to protect itself from DDoS.

If this is the case, the solution would be to take a look into phpBB's database connection code, and enable the extension it uses first, so it connects the first time it tries. If the PHP version you are running doesn't have this connection ("mysql" on PHP7 for example), you'd either need to upgrade phpBB to use newer connections, or downgrade PHP to provide the old connections.

It has been a very long time that I ran a forum using phpBB. The photography forum http://www.digireflex.nl ran on phpBB from 2004 to 2008, after which I moved it to SMF. After I quit as the maintainer/admin of that forum (I wasn't the owner) in 2012 due to time constraints, it just fell behind and died. It was taken offline in 2015.

I don't want to get into forum maintenance or adminning again, but I may be able to offer some suggestions on where to look in case of problems.

edit: note that the PDO extension is the most powerful. It can handle 12 different databases, where MySQLi can only handle MySQL. It also has a few technical advantages. If your phpBB version supports PDO_MySQL, or can be upgraded to a version that supports it, then this would be the recommended way to go. If you are already using MySQLi or even PDO_MySQL, and are still getting timeout errors, you may indeed need to check the database server setup for things like really short timeout settings and such.
