Hello, evening.

my forum website (see signiture) has gone down with a sql error message. please can someone tell me what it means though? i've examined file "common.php" that it mentions and i'm still no wiser?
i'm stumpted, i do not know how to fix, or why its offline.

"someone" has deleted or renamed your config database table, have you checked it still exists in the database using phpmyadmin or similar, also check with your hoster, you "may" have been hacked.... not likely tho...

thanks. my hosts are acting like its not them. if it was hacked, what files were likely to have been the weak ones? ie, is there anything i can do to prevent in future?

I have one question. Are you using 2.0.22 or an older version?
