One of my Forums which i have on the same server as others has come up with the following white screen error

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

I've checked the server, all is fine, i've rund the database checks via cpanel and all came up fine

Does anyone know how i can get rid of this error and get my forum back The Url is
