I don't know if the forum problems are regional or if everyone is experiencing problems, but I get this error message several times per day.

An error occurred with the SQL server:
This is not a problem with IP.Board but rather with your SQL server. Please contact your host and copy the message shown above.


Anyone else having problems with the forum server ????

Aside from whatever the cause is of the constant DB outages, I do not see the point of an error message telling forum viewers to contact the webhost with a copy of the error message.

I agree Te, it is kind of redundant.

Hi All..

This is the first kind of report we're getting. The database is fine. Since when has this been happening?

Kind regards,
Harald Ponce de Leon

Harald,

I have been getting the error over the past week or so. I thought it was a 'glitch' but the frequency has been increasing.

I've seen this a few times. A reload has always worked, so I just ignored it.

The interesting thing is that the part of the warning box that is supposed to contain the error message is always blank. Secure, certainly, but hardly useful.

Regards
Jim

When it happens, it will usually load after a few minutes (the few times I tried) so it might be a server limit is being reached and has to reset, which usually takes about that long.

Over the last 2 weeks or so I have encountered the problem where the forum doesn't load at all. Sometimes it has reported a "service unavailable" error.

The server was down from 10:13pm EST to 10:36pm EST with the following error messages:

503 Service Temporarily Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.


When I tried to refresh 5 minutes later I received this one:

SQL Error
An error occured with the SQL server:

This is not a problem with IP.Board but rather with your SQL server. Please contact your host and copy the message shown above.

«Return to the index



When the server came back online this was the current load:

381 users are online (in the past 60 minutes)

12 members, 369 guests, 0 anonymous users

Theres a screen cap of the error
http://i40.tinypic.com/10ge4vs.png

You can see from http://goo.gl/OvScT that this is not an isolated issue. 9,240 results.

The outage lasts a couple of minutes, hinting that this is possibly a max sessions thing of some form.

In recent weeks I frequently try to make a post, and the browser spins and spins for 10 or 15 minutes before giving up. I don't know if this is the same problem others are seeing. If I retry, sometimes it does the same thing and sometimes I get the message about "The server is temporarily unable to service your request" or "This is not a problem with IP.Board but rather with your SQL server". It's not a freak event... BTW I'm in New York.

It will take a while I suspect, for IP.Board to acknowledge that this is their issue. At the moment it seems many of the other discussion threads on this topic on the range of IPB forums tend to invariably end up pointing the finger at database connection, sleep state and issues rather than themselves. I am not a forum member of IPB so cannot see all that is happening on their support forums, but that is what I can see from reading the cached pages from Google searches.

I experienced the same problem, and at times the replies I type don't show.
