Mysql errors

Postby PaulaO » 15 Mar 2011, 18:16

I've gotten 2 error pages tonight/morning. I copied each one and they say the same.

General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) [2002]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.


The first was when I hit submit for a post and the second when I clicked to go to the main page. Could just be maintenance or something.

That's the message I got. And still get maybe once a week or so? But no, none today. So far. LOL

That usually means that the SQL-Server might be down. Your hoster would need to start this service again.

I feel like I got it once, ages ago, but when I tried a second time immediately afterwards, it worked.

Thanks for letting me know. :-) I'll talk to our server people.
