    Yes, the site is working fine. I received these messages directly after this guy threatened us with an attack, so I'd say it's pretty plain they are related.

    Can't connect to MySQL server on 'mysql.boundbybrotherhood.com' Means that mysql is down or unreachable. Is the site working fine?

    MySQL is not/was not down. Doesn't the fact that the same person's IP address is in the error message mean that he's doing something?

    Your mysql server going down is a possible sign of an attack, but does not mean it is.

    contact your webhost, mysql is down.

    Attempted DDoS attack

    Hi everyone, I am running a 3.8.7 implementation at http://www.boundbybrotherhood.com/forum/.

    Last night a guy came on our voice chat server and threatened a DDoS attack. I ignored him but banned him from the voice chat server and recorded his IP address. Around that same time, I began receiving emails from vbulletin as follows:

    Database error in vBulletin :

    mysqli_real_connect() [<a href='function.mysqli-real-connect'>function.mysqli-real-connect</a>]: (HY000/2003): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'mysql.boundbybrotherhood.com' (110)
    /home/ajguerr/boundbybrotherhood.com/forum/includes/class_core.php on line 1138

    MySQL Error :
    Error Number :
    Request Date : Wednesday, May 4th 2011 @ 09:39:47 PM
    Error Date : Wednesday, May 4th 2011 @ 09:40:08 PM
    Script : http://www.boundbybrotherhood.com/forum/
    Referrer : http://www.boundbybrotherhood.com/
    IP Address : 173.34.170.125
    Username :
    Classname : vB_Database_MySQLi
    MySQL Version :


    Does anyone know what he is trying to do, and how I can seal it off? His IP address is there in the message--it's the same as the one he used to connect to the voice chat server. I have already attempted to contact the abuse dept at his ISP but no reply.
