My question is Does anyone know a good iPage web host that will let you design...? Hoping for any comment. Second question.. What payment options I select. Has this happened to anyone and does anyone know where to begin to fix it? It's beginning to irritate my customers...

Yup, however you might wanna make sure and wait for another person here to confirm this as I am not quite sure. Better yet, why don't you call the iPage guys because they can help better...

This has now officially become a nuisance. It is getting worse. The last page hangs and I've fielded countless phone calls of customers whose computers have locked up at checkout_success. We're talking 5 minutes. Does anyone have any idea of where to begin to look for a problem? The page eventually comes up so it does get written to the database and the order is processed, but it is choking somewhere....

I'm no expert, but run a test order, and watch your system server load if you can, while the checkout_seccess screen is hanging. also try and watch the resource level. are your running a presentient connection to the database?.

Like I said no expert, just trying to get more clues..

From config:.

Define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false');.

And my server load is high always probably because of this hang. It's difficult for me to do a test order because orders are continually come through and I always have customers online. I wouldn't be able to isolate mine from the other processes going on...

Hi thanks for your response....

Yes, many, 35 or so, however because the iPage site is streamlined and optimized, I've used it as templates for some other sites (literally copied the modified catalog and admin pages) and they don't hang upon checking out - no matter what checkout option, it comes back within seconds (I'm on cable). However, for my main site, it hangs for around 4-7 minutes, even for Fax/Phone payment options! Remember, I'm on cable with 3 Megs down...my customers unfortunately probably all have 56K modems. The only real difference is the size of the database. My unzipped database for the main iPage site is around 20 Megs. For these other sites the databases are much smaller. I doubt that size is the problem, for something tells me that it is taking a long time to write to the database.



What could be causing this? I've searched and found others who have had this problem, but no one ever answered. Is there no solution or even an inkling of where to look?.

Thanks for trying to assist. Remember, it happens no matter what payment option, fax or phone, check or money order as well as both linkpoint and authorizenet modules..
