My Site is Down, HELP PLease
« on: April 03, 2008, 01:17:01 PM »
Hi Guys

I need urgent help >> my website is down, and I don't know why !! I've not changed anything at all

Here is the site >> www.kurdsportal.com

and here is the error I get when trying to get onto the 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. }}

I've contacted the guys at my server and here is what they told me >>

"Looks like everything on your server is fine. No CPU load issues and it appears all the services, including MySQL is up.

Check your connection settings to your DB with SMF. Make sure your DB username and password are correct, that the database has been created, and that the username has permission to access that database."

I connected to my server using SmartFTP ( you need to put username and password in there) and it connected fine !!, so that means the password and username for the database are still same right ??

How do I solve this problem ?? someone please help :( :(

looks like a table crashed.  you can run a repair in the database through a tool such as phpmyadmin when tables crash and attempt to repair them.  Your host should be able to do the same.

Everything looks fine now to me, so i shall mark this one as solved :)
