Help! What do I do next??
« on: December 04, 2017, 10:10:01 AM »
Getting tons of emails - approx every 10 minutes about an "SMF Database Error".  I can't get into my forum to update, etc.

I'm a real novice but have been able to maneuver this forum for several years now - I need suggestions.

ask your host to look into it.

Link to your forum?  Do you have ftp access?  Who is your host?

I get backup of my database from my hosting server every 10 days, and I keep four older backup for safety reasons.
And I do also take backup of entire files every 20 days.

Any one does no act that way he looks for trouble.
Now talk with your hosting provider if they can restore database files from their own backup.
