    Another forum outage.. Sorry..

    Seeing the error this morning.. I assumed, as per the message, that it was a server busy issue.. As I am also kinda busy.. I left it thinking it would be back..

    Seeing it not back this afternoon.. I checked the server.. And the MySQL server.. And all were working..

    Somehow the settings file, that contains the database info, had been wiped. As there's very little way that can happen by itself, I strongly suspect my host, who I have fallen out with kind of spectacularly.. Wiped or reverted the settings file to 'unload' the server ??

    Part of me doesn't believe a host could be that unprofessional but I struggle to find other answers.

    Anyway.. I managed to find a way to get into and edit the php file through a web front end and it's back.. For how long is anyone's guess.

    I will push forward the movement of this to a real host or vps as fast as I can.. Hopefully mid week.

    I had to put my user name and password in again, don't know if that is related to whatever you said in the 1st post.

    Money can't buy love but it can rent a pretty close imitation.

    And CPU load took it down again this morning..

    I think I can get this over to a Singapore host this week.. Traveling for next 48 hours.. Then will try to do it from Cambodia.
