"Connection Problems" Error

(1/8) > >>

Anyone else getting this error? Sometimes when I load an AARoads forum page, it gives me the following message:

--- Quote ---Connection Problems

Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.
--- End quote ---

Refreshing the page seems to work, but I've been getting it several times a day. This is on Firefox browser.

Yup. Error is on our web host's end. I'm guessing they'll say the solution is to pay them more money.

I got it a number of times in quick succession shortly after 3:00. I had wondered whether it was on my end because we had lost power for about an hour starting at 2:00. Didn't seem like something that would be on my end given what the message said, but it's good to know either way.

I just got it, but it disappeared after a refresh. Google Chrome, but also enhanced with VPN active.

I get this a lot on my iPad which is easily solved by refreshing the page.
