what going on with the database lately !???? (heeeelp !!!!!)
« on: January 18, 2004, 12:59:35 PM »
Hello,

Iíve been having MYSQL database problems for a while now. I did always get it fixed.

I was on my website just minutes ago and everything was doing fine until I get an e-mail from a users telling me he cannot access the website.
I go see and all I get is :

phpBB :

Could not connect to the database


I went to into my C-panel. It still says the size of my database,  but when I press the Mysql database link, there is NO database anymore !

What is going ??? have I been hacked ?  is there something wrong with the server ??

Iím on Leo

Hi psykik,

Leo's MySQL was down temporarily.  It should be back up now.  Please let us know if you are still experiencing any difficulty with the database.

Thanks

heheh thanks miraenda !

I was freaking out. lost everything last time due to an unkown (probably stupid error) and I didn't want that from happening again.

Though I backup my database daily now.


Thanks for the fast reply.
Even mailed support very fast this time. (yes I was really freaked out  :oops: )

Great to hear.  :thumb: Also, good idea about the daily backups. I need to start doing that myself.

you should miraenda. I lost about 200 posts because I didn't back up enough.

you never know what could happen.

especially now you are running a CMS, it's quite important to back up. That way you don't loose anything (or just a little bit)


greets
