Hello I've ben trying to log into my favourite hobby forum, having happily done so with no problem since 2005. Now, all I get is the following message: "Database Error: Unable to connect to your database. Your database appears to be turned off or the database connection settings in your config file are not correct. Please contact your hosting provider if the problem persists." Is this likely to be something wrong at my end or at the other? This has come right out of the blue. Any ideas/advice appreciated. Thanks Nelclaret

    Good, inexpensive wine (not an oxymoron).

Hi nelclaret. This is a problem on their server. It's having problems communicating with their backend database, nothing you can do except send them an E-mail to let them know about the problem.
