    Anyone else experiencing mac-forums login problems that I experienced most of yesterday and again today??

    Something about Database error but the suggested fixes usually did not work.

    I imagine the Internet servers for credit card purchases etc. were extremely busy yesterday and today, probably the busiest shopping days of the year and may have caused a bit of disruption.

    We were experiencing data base errors last night but it cleared up after about an hour or so. Nick took care of it.

    I saw the problem yesterday, but not today.

    When that happens Patrick, there is nothing you can do on your end to fix that - just try logging in again after a few hours or the next day.

    This type of problem btw has nothing to do with the internet being busy.

    So what is the actual cause...???

    I did notice that when it did work, it was very slow to do so, also the same as at another vBulletin Mac forum site, or at least what used to be!!!

    It's a problem with the mySQL database used by vBulletin and/or the server vBulletin runs on.

    I received different error messages each time I tried to log in - one that the server had gone away and one that there were too many connections.
    However, the error messages one gets do not always reflect what has actually happened.
    The only thing for sure is that your request to access the forum was received, ie no problem with the net making the connection, but the server that vBulletin runs on could not respond properly.
    The actual causes could be many, but they are problems with the server not the net.

    Database error was back again this morning

    - - - Updated - - -

    Hmmm..

    Only had part of my message posted.
    The whole message (which luckily I saved) was:
    Database error was back again this morning.
    Works now but there is still something wrong -when I click on "Post Quick Reply" instead of of posting the message I get the window with
    "This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved" popping up.

    I also had issue trying to access the forums earlier. But, the iOS app works.
