  • Forum Down! Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't initialize character set 8

    I have been receiving this error on my forum since this morning. I am running licensed version 2.2.9 and been up nearly one year and 50,000 posts with never this problem. I was able to get in (occassionally) this morning and perform repair.php function and full database backup. Please advise as to what else to check to remedy this problem. My website is www.tractorforum.com

    Thanks,
    Andy

    Sounds like an issue with MySQL rather then vBulletin - but I have no experience with this particular error message.
