Thanks for letting me know.  I've only just got back on here myself.  Very annoying. :veryangry:  I haven't had a reply from the owner of the server yet.

Hi
Had trouble logging in at 13:30 today Sunday 2nd Dec, message read
"safari could not open page because server stopped responding" however could get into other web sites without any trouble.
Tried Forum again about an hour later and got in without any problem.

Regards

Ray

I got this message at about 12:30 today;

"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 had just finished reading a topic and was trying to read another. Tried refreshing the screen but got the same message.

Had the same problem lunchtime (12.30ish) today too.
Have been getting the same message for some time now.

I don't suppose that the hosts are for some weird reason doing backups at that time?

Nobody knows what's causing it!  All we know if that it's not our fault.  Thanks for letting me know.

I quite often get 'cannot connect to server', but it's usually back up after a few minutes or an hour or two, depending on when I try again.

Wasn't sure where to stick this, but decided on this thread.

Since the Server Move, I seem to have 2098 unseen photos in the Media section according to the front page, even though I've no Unseen photos when I select the Unseen link from the Media menu!!!

If that makes sense  :confused1: :confused1:

Regards

Neal.
