    [SOLVED] Connection problems

    I've been running into a lot of database, connection and net time out errors over the last few days, when connecting to PF. It just lasts a couple minutes, but happens at least a few times a day.

    Anyone else had these problems?

    For me the problem has been sporadic, but not in the last few days.

    We're still troubleshooting some backup processes resulting in alot of rebooting.

    A reboot will clear the PF sessions stored in mysql.

    Here's one little problem:

    when I log out, I get a screen that says something like,'return to the previous page you were viewing'--but when I click it, it takes me to the home page--not the thread, or the forum sub-group I was in.
