Can't connect to (database) archive

Postby panyasan » Sat May 12, 2012 4:58 am

Hi, I don't know if its got something to do with the new update, but I can't reach the archive.

This morning (May 12th) I used both Firefox and Internet Explorer when I tried to go the Archive by using the the links in the New Fanfic Up-thread (other links that go to other sites still worked on that thread), but I got a warning that the system failled to connect to the database.

I also went straight to the archive by clicking on the Archive at the home page (http://www.thedelphicexpanse.com), using Firefox en Internet Explorer.

Everytime I got this warning:

A fatal MySQL error was encountered.
ERROR: Failed to connect to the database!

Then I removed all of my history in Firefox and Internet Explorer and tried again to go straight to the archive, but I still got the warning.

Let me know if this is enough information.

I'm having the same problem. I'm not sure what is going on but I'm looking into it.

All fixed! Sorry about that. There was some work done on the site last night and it inadvertently caused the archive to go down.

FYI folks, when I accidentally knocked the site down last night, I posted about it to our Twitter account to let everyone know (@delphicexpanse). You can usually find information there about issues. Even if you don't want to join twitter, you can bookmark the page for our account and just peek in on it. Honeybee and I usually post there if there's trouble we're aware of. 8-)
