    I'm not sure if you're aware of it or it affects others, but I'm experiencing frequent intermittent database errors this morning: "An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later".

    I upgrade the database server about 30min ago. Are you still receiving errors?

    I had to ditch a cache service we were using. The site might be a bit slow until I can install a new one later today.

    As opposed to an expected one? (I know this phrasing isn't unique to PF, but it always struck me as unhelpful language. Even "Error 1771" would be better - it doesn't mean anything to me, but it would mean something to someone)

    I thought the same :) "An unusual database error" would sound better already. Haven't had the error again, but then I haven't browsed much yet (I'm at work).

    Well that wasn't fun. Upgraded MySQL and half the old settings broke the server. Still working with it, but at least it's running again.

    You'll be getting mysql errors for the next hour. I need to restart each setting I change.

    Rutt Rho! I was thinking happy thoughts and crossing my fingers, hoping this last REALLY BIG outage would provide the info to fix. It lasted a long time for me and on all computers and browsers. Thinking positively, perhaps the residue is just in a net cache and will evaporate RSN!

    Just read Greg's post above. Yeah! (Life always tastes sweeter when problems are under control!)

    I have to go for now. It should be stable, but when I get back in a couple hours you might find some errors as I keep tweaking
