Lately I've seen a lot of:


    General Error
    SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

    Can't connect to MySQL server on 'mysql1203.hostexcellence.com' (4) [2003]

    An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.


This has come up several times when trying to load the forum -- and doesn't seem to make any difference if the "private data" has been cleared or not. Has this been happening with any one else?

You might try clearing the cache and see if that helps. I haven't seen that error message when I log on.

Already know the answer to that, jrc ... doesn't make any difference. It shows up even after I've cleared the cache (or clearing 'private data' as Firefox puts it.)

Hey Judy - I just got a very similar message to the one you posted about.

I'm guessing the host server just gets overwhelmed sometimes. I can't seem to find anything to indicate definitively one way or the other.

My guess is that it has to do with high traffic and a slow connection. I will get errors connecting to the database myself, but not often enough to be able to figure out why.

I only use DSL or Broadband. I got the error message twice yesterday at work on a broadband connection.

My guess is the host server is just overtaxed.

Hmmm. I was getting that message yesterday too. Sounds suspiciously like an overloaded server. Glad that was the limit of the trouble.

:-k Hmmm ... it could be a busy server, but I'm usually trying to access PWA after 1am EST most days, at the moment. It worried me more because this is the only website of the ones I check that seemed to be having the problem. Wondered if it had to do with the new board setup ....

Thanks for the probable answer, everyone! :)

You're probably on at the same time as the 'bots. They don't show up as users any more, so you wouldn't have any way of knowing they're on there.

Wait. My mistake. I'm sharing the board with MSN bots at the moment, so they DO still show up as users.

I wonder where all the traffic is coming from at 1am. Judy, are you still getting the error message?

Not after I posted the question .... :lol:

Early part of last week was miserable trying to access the forum. One night it was over 45 minutes before it loaded, after innumerable "General Error" messages.

Bandwidth is a 24 hour issue - probably people from all over the world are on at any given time.

Yes, its not just our message board. Anyone sharing our server will contribute to the problem.
