Let me add my thanks too. I know what it's like to do a job for free that people frequently take for granted. So I thank again the Admins and mods who appear to have saved FPN from a big disaster.

On a sacred quest for the perfect blue ink mixture!

The "database error" page just returned for me, for about a minute or two, preventing me from accessing posts and even the index page itself. All seems back to normal now, however. I am hoping that was temporary, so the admins and mods can spend their weekend recovering from their heroic efforts earlier this week.

I've been on a quest to see if I could commit all Seven Deadly Sins in a single day. Finally, it dawned on me I shouldn't try for the One Day Wonder Prize for all seven in one day. It's simply out of any question as you can't commit decent sloth while busily ticking the other six off your crowded "to do" list. -- ViolinWriter

Yes, it only was a maintenance thing, lasted only a few minutes, please see my message on this I posted a few minutes ago :D.

I just had the error pages pop up for me about 5 minutes ago. Is this also a part of scheduled maintenance?

Nope, it isn't.

 

I'll investigate.

It appears there was a second maintenance window after all, and indeed it looks like that was the cause of the problems you encountered.

 

Phew! Wiping sweat from brow... :D

I am very glad to hear that. Thanks for the update!

Wim-7 AM US eastern standard time driver errors, no access.. too until 7:18 to enter FPN via partially broken link..it allowed me to go to the main link then open this page. hopefully post this..

IF it's similar to the original event, would be allowed one post in one location, before I hit the error notice again..let's see

edited to add, was able to check my profile, old posts, and a couple of new entries.. so must have been temporary glitch..

seems like you are gauging unusual error events?

off to work!

Yes, there was another glitch - Apache was down.

 

Fixed by Gary and Elaine :D.

We just did some maintenance, and expect to have solved the problems as a result.

It's a conspiracy, perpetuated by "the man," to keep FPN down... :ninja:

Yes, I have that too!

 

When I try to post, I have that database error. However, when I look at the thread where I tried to post, the post is there. Weird, but tolerable...

This morning was fine but I've received the database errors messages 3 times tonight. Hope it is restored soon.

Please note that you may experience this "Driver Error" database related message from time to time, even when we are not performing maintenance. There is a "click here" link to "refresh" in an attempt to clear it, and most of the time it works on the first try.

 

Maintenance is being performed at a much more frequent rate than before to combat the appearance of these messages, which are not really errors but "database timeouts". We are working with our software vendor to resolve this problem and feel confident we will eventually. The good thing is that it is contained now, so that the errors do eventually disappear for much longer periods.

 

We thank you very much for your patience in this matter!

 

Sincerely,
