    late night errors

    I'm getting some SQL errors late at night. It seems to only happen between the hours of 2am-3am. This started happening only after upgrading from vb3.0.7 to vb3.5.1. The error is the following:
    Database error in vBulletin :
    mysql_connect(): Lost connection to MySQL server during query
    /home/tsf/public_html/includes/class_core.php on line 273
    MySQL Error  : 
    Error Number :

    Referrer     : [URL=""][/URL]
    IP Address   :
    Username     : 
    Classname    : vb_database
    The refer changes, and I get a ton of them between those hours.

    This is almost certainly a server issue, probably related to some cron jobs running during that time. See this post for the possible causes of a lost connection error:

    Hello, Ive been running vBulletin without any incident for about 8 months now. I've recently switched ISP's and when I transferred over to the new server I started getting error emails, always error 2013. I have been switched over for about 1 week now, some days i get 15-20, others I have gotten 150-200. I have asked my ISP
