Havin' troubles visiting the forum!

Yes, every now and then I get this error message; "phpBB : Critical Error

Could not connect to the database", when I try to connect to this site.
Does this happen to anyone else? Is a server problem?

Cheers
Raven

I get that too at times. It's probably a server problem.. or maybe we're just two very unlucky dudes :P

Nope make that 4 !

Got to be a server side issue ...

Could be due to the swapping over from the last server ... Problems can take a while to iron out so bear with Rafe ! Im sure he'll have it sussed in no time at all ...

Sorry about this.

Someone launched a DoS attack on the server according to the hosting people. The error means MySQL is not working. Hopefully this shouldn't happen again.

I received that error, too, but not for the first time since the site-moving, but also one or two days back. Massive DoS-attacks against AAS? Hope not...

Not necessairly against us, just the server! And yes there was a minor hiccup a few days ago. Only last 20 mins or so and late at night, so most people didn't notice.

Rafe, me too got that error msg only once so far. Perhaps is due to over congested in the network or the MySQL server is really too busy in handling requests from users.

I suppose I'm addicted, but there's so much going on in the forums 24/7 that it's really hard work to follow if you don't log in every 30 minutes .

Yes Miguel.
I have been having this problem since yesterday.

I also dont seem to be able to attach files.
Nor is the postcount updated.
Nor can i see new posts on topics :( (only on certain threads since
others seem to be doing fine) .
Also, the "Last Post by" also does not seem to be updated. For example...
this link http://allaboutsymbian.com/phpBB2/vi...?p=26994#26994 has 7 replies at this time, but says only one.

:(
