  • Database error - Main page will not show


    All of a sudden when I went to my main site page it immediately said Database error. I was just on the site 5 min prior and everything was ok. I did not do any changes or upgrades any time soon.

    I right clicked on the homepage to see error and it says:

    Database error in vBulletin :

    mysql_connect() [&lt;a href='function.mysql-connect'&gt;function.mysql-connect&lt;/a&gt;]: Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 113
    /services3/webpages/m/u/ on line 311

    Any idea of what this means and how to fix it?

      FYI: This is a server issue. See this post for the possible causes of a lost connection error:
