How to check MySql server status

So fud seems to be up and running again (crosses fingers) – but this PM my phpbb can’t connect to MySql: “phpBB : Critical Error…Could not connect to the database” – how do I check to see what’s up (or down) with that? I was able to access the bb all day, but not once since I got home from work.

Please forgive the newbie Q.


Please log a support ticket. I just saw your message and sure enough, I can’t connect to either of mine.

They switched out the server already and I thought every thing was finally stable. Looking at fud (from what I can see) it looks ok. Must be some kind of network problem. No privs to do a netstat.
