Is this just on the website? Does this happen to the forums as well, only on one computer?

Hey hey TO,

I'm having the same problems. It says something along the lines of (sorry, I never learnt how to screenshot, nor did I have the foresight to copy the text): "SMF cannot access the database. This may be caused by the server being busy."

As of now, I've been unable to access the site for 9 hours.

9 hours? Over the past three days there's been three spots of a couple of hours downtime - there hasn't been a 9 hour downtime recently however. Anywhoo this recent bout of problems (...) isn't user-specific, it's affecting everyone.

The same happened to me as-well, i could access the web-site, but the title had been replaced with a load of computer babble. And as others have said, it kept on saying "SMF error, this maybe caused by the server being busy" well something along the lines of that. :P

It's been doing that for 3 days running for me for about 4, 5 even 6+ hours!!!!

What's going on?

Well, that is to say, everytime I've had some spare time on my hands (which is not all the time), I haven't been able to access the site - I haven't been sitting at my computer hitting 'refresh' for 9 straight hours! On the day I posted that, the site was affected whilst I was online - I believe I was checking my PM box. Then, as it was 1:00pm AEST, I tried eveytime I had spare time; the only time I could access the site was at approximately 10:15pm AEST.

I'm glad it's affecting everyone else!! Hahahaha!!! It means my computer/network/ISP/whatever is behaving itself!!! *stabs computer for past crimes relating to this*

Lol! Well sorry again about all these troubles, my host do take notice and are trying everything they can to fix this - however the problem seems hardware related (sometimes) meaning expensive/time consuming fixes.

And now's a good time to mention we'll be down for 1 hour later on :P

I will try to post as soon as the installation is finished. If all goes well, I should have MySQL running off of the Raptor by later tomorrow night.

Sorry about all these downtimes, I'm hoping my host will sort things out within a month or two.
