Post General Error?
I just wanted to ask what was that all about, and if it only happened to me... (which I doubt it did, but anyway....)

the thing is, I wasn't able to access the forum for about 6 hours, and instead got a message that said "general error".

any idea why this happened? know how to avoid it in the future?

I had the same problem, and it's not the first time this has occurred. It usually only lasts for a short while, so I kind of assumed that people were aware of it, and that it was being taken care of.

well, it was the first time it occurred to me, and since it lasted for so long, I thought James was going to mention something about it the moment he took care of the problem. by the way, do you mean it occurs only to some people and not to every member at the same time?

There was a crash in the SQL database. Simple enough to repair once I became aware of the problem. This is not related to any of the momentary glitches that occasionally occur (and are almost always shorter than one minute in duration). This was something that required manual intervention.

By the way, this is one reason why there is a degree of decoupling between the main site and the forums. The forums went down but the site stayed up. Not how I would have chosen to test the buffers, but they work...
