Critical Error?!?!?

Post by HondaCRF475 » Tue Mar 04, 2003 12:53 am

At the Phpbb forums that I visit, we get a phpbb critical error about every 10 minutes. The owner just updated to phpbb 2 and the error has become a lot more consistent. We don't know how to fix it...any information would be greatly apprectiated! :)

Is it a 'cannot connect to database' error?

I recently installed my own board and this happens to me as well. Often a simple refresh clears it. Is this the same for your board, or is it a lingering error?

most probably a server issue (database server overloaded/temporarily down).
