mySQL database dissapeared?


My site worked fine yesterday, and I haven’t changed anything today, but spontaneously my site throws the error:

Error: Unknown MySQL server host ‘’ (2)

I tried logging into my mySQL database but now it doesn’t recognize my username/password? I checked my PHP code for my site and it hasn’t changed at all (and shouldn’t have changed by itself anyways). It all points to the correct host names, db names, etc.

Is there a possibility that my database is just hibernating for some reason?


same here

IPB WARNING [2] mysql_connect(): Unknown MySQL server host ‘’ (2) (Line: 115 of /ips_kernel/class_db_mysql.php) Deals & Coupon Codes. Why Pay Retail?


Same here…

mySQL error: Unknown MySQL server host ‘’ (2)
mySQL error code:
Date: Tuesday 09th of August 2005 09:25:38 PM

What’s going on?


I’ve gotten this also:

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Unknown MySQL server host ‘’ (2)


I don’t suppose my reply of saying I also have this error is going to help other than verify this is more widespread heh…



Looks like DNS lookups are failing:

$ dig

; <<>> DiG 9.2.1 <<>>
;; global options: printcmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

You’ll get the same results if you plug in your sql server name. =/


Same here…I have a problem with mysql

Warning: mysql_connect(): Unknown MySQL server host ‘’ (2) in /home/.jarred/drumandbass/ on line 7

Não foi possível estabelecer uma conexão com o gerenciador MySQL. Favor contactar o Administrador.


add me to the list… every mysql-connection is gone


Guess no one has heard anything about this yet?


Mine is also down; I get three mysql_error warnings, and then “Could not connect to the database.”


Mine is working again after approx 10 hours


atomic seems to be back to normal now.
