I am frequently getting the Unable to search at this time error, even just after logging onto the forum and the search of unread messages is my first action.

Re: "Sorry but you cannot use search at this time. Please try again in a few minutes."

Is that a server busy issue or some kind of permission issue?

Thank you,
v/r
Jeff

I've been getting it also. It's not just you.

This has got quite bad at the moment. I haven't been able to search at all for the last couple of days, which means I can't use "See unread posts" which is how I usually read the board.

Last time I remember this happening (found it by googling on the website) Dannii said that the server probably needed a restart and that only Merk could do it. Which is another reason to try to take the hosting out of poor Merk's hands!

You also have to downgrade your SSL version and be sure not to change your User-Agent string.
