Plenty of Fish Down – Server Error

Today it appears as if the dating website PlentyofFish is having a few problems, if you head over to www.plentyoffish.com the site does not load, instead you see a complicated-looking server error message that says “Server Error in ‘/’ Application”.

American’s seem to have started experiencing problems this morning (Monday August 9), there has been no official statement from the site’s admin, therefore we imagine that they are hard at work trying to rectify the problems.

As we find out more about why PlentyofFish is or was down we will keep you posted, we have heard rumors suggesting that the site is down for good, however no reliable source has confirmed this.

Have you been able to access the site today?

It looks like POF has serious hardware / network problems. Seems to have been down since 10’ish GMT. A holding page giving any sort of update would be helpfull, not very proffesional for the webs biggest dating site. If its not up soon I may have to go to the pub!

it was working at 5:30pm british time 9/8/10, from the looks of it and the reading of it there servers have gone down, it's to be expected, i doubt that it's anything to do with being hacked it will be back up come tomorrow evening i reckon, plus if they were going to close it they would have been more warning alot more warning so we could get that date sorted for the week, what a closer that would be lol

spreadit.org says it has had this problem before and should be up and running again within 24 hours so dont worry everyone. they are more than likely just up dating or changing servers due to so many people on it.

The part that is a little concerning is that it almost seems like the server could be having a SQL database issue possibly network related. Or it could have fallen victim to a sql injection or some other type of hacking or hijacking attempt. The only thing that concerns me is that some people have personal information on that site including myself which means that the site could now be venerable to hackers looking to steal personal information. In turn this could be a major security leak or worse. I hope that they just took the site down for unscheduled… Read more »

It seems that the web page cannot talk to its SQL counterpart and that is why the error is getting generated. It even hints at the possibility that the SQL server that it is trying to contact might be having network related issues.

POF has been 'down' in the UK since around 10am today. I have used the site on and off for 3 years and this is the first time i have experienced this level of 'down time'. There have been an occasional 10-30 minutes over the years but nothing on this scale. I have tried to contact admin but have not had a response. I'm guessing i'm not the only one that has tried though. I'm a little concerned that this article makes reference to a rumour that the site is down for good – even though it is a free… Read more »

It will never disapear. It has made Marcus a very rich man. He might sell it but even
that is doubtful. It has done this from time to time. I remember when I first joined
in 2007 it did it alot. They are probably either tweeking the site – they have changed
alot regarding the forums and how to access them or some dumb ass just did
something wrong – or one of thier servers crashed. It will be back.
