  • Database Errors...

    I get database errors about 75% of the time when I visit my forums. I am using Vbulletin 2.3.0 with ProArcade hack and quick reply. No others. How do I go about figuring out why the database won't respond?

    Thank you!

    What's the error you are receiving?

      It's just an annoying database error.

      There seems to have been a slight problem with the database.

        This is my load average... it started to work temporarily, how do I find the error code?

          Right click on the page and view the source, then post the full error message here.

            It's probably a max users connections error message....

              Damn... you're right.

              How do I get this fixed?

                The server has maxed out the number of MySQL connections it allows. You can try turning persistent connections off in your config.php:

                PHP Code:
                // use persistant connections to the database
                // 0 = don't use
                // 1 = use
                $usepconnect 0
                But if you still have problems after that, all you can do is ask your host to raise the maximum number of connections they allow.

                  I think I fixed it... this is what I did. Changed persistant connection to 0, set the NIX to 5.00 and changed max sessions to 20. Now people have to wait their turn to post...
