    This error means that either:

    1) The db info in your config.php file is wrong (in which case your forums won't work at all.)

    2) That user doesn't have permission to access the database listed in config.php.

    3) The database doesn't exist.

    4) MySQL isn't accepting new connections. (The server could either be down or has reached it's maximum connections limit.)

    If you are sure your config.php info is correct, then you will need to contact your host about this.

    Note, many servers are being probed for the phpBB worm these days and the MySQL server is being overloaded. This could account for these errors.

        Your forums are coming up fine for me. Must have been a temporary server issue.

          there was a problem in the config file. not sure how that happened, but I was missing a close quote on the database username. sorry I didnt post that I found it, was pretty brain dead after searching so long.
          thanks for the help, I appreciate it!
