SMF Error
« on: August 29, 2013, 12:12:25 am »
I keep getting this error:

Connection Problems

Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.

I am using Chrome and swapped from https and http and both still get that error. I wasn't sure if it would help or not. >.>

Ditto what Josi said. Also on Chrome. I got the same text:

Same.  Trie mentioned it when I got home from the store, and it interrupted posting my eulogy for our just-departed rat McClane.

Seems to reconnect as soon as I hit refresh no matter what page I am on. Whatever it is the glitch is short lived, like a rash of sneezes.

Refresh does not work for me. Still tend to get the error more often than not. If I open a new tab and close the old one, I am less likely to receive the error, but it still occurs.

Same here, and I'm on Chrome as well.

It does seem to still post my messages as well, even when the error pops up.

Sometimes it won't pop up, other times it will. Sometimes I only have to refresh once, other times I refresh Five or six times.

It also still sends my messages and posts through when it happens.

Same here. Maybe it really was just because too many people were on?

Apparently we ran out of connections. Holy carp.

Need to put some limits on things >_>

Error logs were the culprit... I thought I turned off E_STRICT et all but I guess I didn't, really : /

Is all good now.
