It's been happening to me several times a day over the past week, instead of the forums I get a page saying something is wrong with the driver, with a link to 'return to index'. I click on  that and get a 404 error. Refreshing the page usually doesn't work, I just have to try again later. I was concerned because it's getting more frequent.

BTW, this happens both at home and at work

The other night we had a problem with the database... but it was resolved. I personally haven't noticed any problems since. We're watching it closely though.

I have also backed up the Database. And I believe GoDaddy (our host) keeps everything backed up as well.

Thanks for staying on top of this Jim. I don't know what I'd do without my "Soup Fix"!

You mean this one ...

It's a standard MySQL thang ... someone just needs to fire up PhpMyAdmin {PMA} then 1) Do a Check/Analyze and Repair Tables then  2) run a Database Optimiazation.

Presumably IPB has some basic database fix and optimize code BUT eventually you need to give databases a good overhaul especially when they get BIG.

You can also get this error when the MySQL "server" is having problems BUT the only way to tell is by going through your sites error log and looking for SQL connection errors vs database faults and no GoDaddy wont tell you :no:

Regardless eventually someone is going to have to do database maintenance :confused:

Yup me too. When I clicked on 'go to index' it brought me to a page unique to this forum that sometime shows up when things aren't working right

I dunno about "unique to this forum" ... that's probably the GoDaddy default webserver error message.
