Problem with the Asylum Walls

No, I have no idea what’s wrong with Asylum Walls. I get garbage when viewing any of the pages. I’m clueless at this point… I don’t even know if the rest of you are seeing what I’m seeing, although I’m pretty sure you are since I checked from multiple machines/networks. It doesn’t *seem* like a corrupt database, as that wouldn’t cause total gibberish like that…. that I know of. Nor does it seem like a problem with the PHP scripting language on the server, since ALL of the pages on the site are PHP and none of them are having a similar problem. I can probably figure it out with some time and head-scratching, however, I’m not actively working on the problem at the moment. I’ve got other things going on right now. I’ll throw some brain-cycles at it later in the week.

    Yep, I also see only giberish when I try to acces the Asylum Walls. Looks as if it was incripted somehow.

    Actually, it was compressed. I still don’t know the root cause, but I strongly suspect that the host changed some obscure server-wide PHP setting (or upgraded PHP to another version) that didn’t have the proper compression library enabled. Disabling compression entirely brought the forum back, BUT it still isn’t 100% right. Plus it feels kinda sluggish.
