Forum down/error?
« on: December 07, 2011, 05:31:12 pm »

Today it was the third time in last 7 days that I've encountered error while trying to access anim8or's forum site:

'Connection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.'

Anyone else had this problem as well?

I had a 505 error today, about noon EST. Was back up after a while.

The forum database might need some maintenance, that or it's caused by problems associated with shared hosting. If it keeps happening then naturally we'll all shoot an email to Steve ;)
