Database error

Hi I have installed a phpBB forum on my site here.

It works great as it’s supposed to 98% of the time, but this error occurs about 2 or 3 times a day, a blank page with the following text:

phpBB : Critical Error

Could not connect to the database

I didn’t mind it so much at first, but now that I’m getting more members, it has become really irritating, since it can last some minutes before it comes back. Anyone experience something like this?

contact support about that one, sounds like your MySQL server has intermittent issues and support should really be notified, they may not be aware of such a transient problem.


THanks Jason, I have done that. I sure hope they can fix it, because it’s bloody awful for a forum!

First response I got was that they didn’t notice anything wrong on the database/server or whatever… they asked me to send specific times of the error, and I did. Fingers crossed!
