I've seen the status reports about the fileserver issues -- could this be causing an outage of MySQL servers as well?
Warning: mysql_connect(): Lost connection to MySQL server...Unable to connect to database
I checked for a server-wide outage, but no problem was found:
Outage resolved: No server-wide problem was found.

Outage first reported.

Any thoughts, or anyone having the same trouble so I know it's not just me?
