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.

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.

Hi, did you ask your host about the issue? Did they get things working for you? :)

 Happily running multiple SMF 2.0 installations.
