Hi All,

I am having issues with google giving a soft error 404 message and it appears to have to do with members details page this is one of the links:
http://www.outdoorking.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showprofile&User=4730

This is another one:
File not found: scripts/showflatu0026Number1724.inc.php

This is another one:
File not found: scripts/postlistu0026Board6u0026page2u0026sortrepliesu0026orderasc.inc.php

Also getting these errors:

I noticed at the time the server was down, there is many php process causing high cpu load
[17/May/2017:00:23:32 +1000] "GET /forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=45692 HTTP/1.0" 301 286 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; + http://www.google.com/bot.html)"


Do I have issues with files on my site?

Any help to lead me in the correct direction will be greatly appreciated.

Based on the access privileges you've set up on your forums, your member profiles pages cannot be viewed unless the user is logged in. So unless Google has an account on your website and is logging in, they will just receive an error page with a 404 error code.

1) Go to Control Panel >> Permissions | Groups >> Guests | Site
2) Put a "1" in the "Can view Member Profiles" box.
3) Click the update button at the bottom.

NOTES: At the time of this post, your forum version says you are on UBB.threads 7.5.8 (Released November 29th, 2013). The current version of UBB.threads is 7.6.0 (Released Febuary 15th, 2017).

Versions 7.5.8 and 7.5.9 use undesirable "SEO URL" formatting. The URL formatting is correct in all other versions of UBB.threads, post and prior.

Though, what most likely looks like the cause of this, is that somewhere along the indexing of your site, the "&" in your url was not escaped correctly by a third-party spider, and stored as a encode URI component ID with its "%" string dropped.

You said, "server was down" -- Your server could have gone down for any number of reasons. Though what happens most often is that a service triggers a "fault" and then it attempts to restart itself. If it has too many attempts, it will just quit. This causes a domino effect, causing many other services to either do the same, or just fail. During this process, the server cpu load is high.

Isaac,

Thank you for your reply about the google soft 404 error which appears to be fix now.

I have been advised to wait till the latest release to be available so that I can keep the cost down for the update.

Another issue is a mobile friendly one, below is an image.

I hope that you can help with this one as well please.

v7.6 is a major rewrite, with features added every release; these aren't maintenance releases... By waiting to upgrade you're just missing out on new features, bug fixes, and security enhancements (v7.6.0 Release Announcement). The v7.5 series is not mobile capable.
