  • [Forum] Database Error

    Hi hope someone can help
    Tonight when tidying up some threads, my site went down.
    All I got was a front page with a VB logo saying "database error" and that the site had encountered an error an the admins had been emailed. Having never received an email for an error, i went into my domains webmail "all mail" box and low and behold, error reports had been sent.
    To my surprise, I've had quite a few!!

    Anyway, the latest is this....
    Database error in vBulletin :

    By the time i'd finished typing this thread for help, I refreshed my page and the site was back... but it's a worry.
    Can any of the clever people let me know if anything stands out as to what the problem was

    That error means that the connection to your host was interrupted, it doesn't *usually* mean that something broke with the forums.
