Database errors
« on: October 10, 2011, 04:47:55 PM »
Today I've been getting a notice saying there has been a database error when I press "Post". The message does get posted properly, however. I've also had timed outs when trying to connect to the forum, or when moving about through the forum.

No similar problems with other sites. Anything going on?

^This does happen occasionally. Usually when I want to post something and a database error shows up I just go back and hit 'refresh' and the post shows up normally.

I've been getting them for every single post today. As long as they get up, though...

I do not know if this will post.

I have not been able to post anything recently without getting a database error.

EDIT:

Apparently, it posted but did not take me back to my post.
I only discovered the posting when checking HOME and scrolling down.

Same thing happens to me. I figured it was happening to everyone, so I didn't report it because I don't want the admins to be flooded with the same message from 50 different people.

I reset the server yesterday, but the errors came back today. I just reset it again now. If it keeps happening, I will put in a ticket to have the server power cycled.

Thanks for letting me know.

Both sites are buggy.

I reset the database process again, but I am going to do a server reset tonight when there is less posting activity.

I have requested a power cycle of the server (a complete reset).

If these errors continue, I will need to investigate and take more drastic measures.

Don't worry, though; I take regular backups of all data so if things were to go down, I could restore the forum quickly.
