phpBB Critical eror cannot connect to database

I operate a phpBB. Today, I started getting a critical error message, ( phpBB Critical eror cannot connect to database), and could not get into my board.

Then, I could. Then, I could not. Then, I could…

Well, I can’t now and it has been about three hours.

I tend to think it is a server/host issue as it was an intermitent problem.

Anybody else run into this? Thanks for any assistance.

DH preformed some Mysql upgrades today. Data on one machine got corrupted… Possibly your issued stems from the same thing, in which case you shoudl contact support.


TY - I have done so. I appreciate your prompt response and advice.
