When clicking on the ‘Forum’ link, are any of you getting the following message sometimes?

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Lost connection to MySQL server at ‘reading authorization packet’ WHERE post_id = system error: 0 in /home/01/80/3018001/web/forum/db/mysql4.php on line 48

Warning: mysql_error(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/01/80/3018001/web/forum/db/mysql4.php on line 330

Warning: mysql_errno(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/01/80/3018001/web/forum/db/mysql4.php on line 331
phpBB : Critical Error

Could not connect to the database

If you click on it several times, you get this repeatedly. Best just to walk away and try again in half an hour.

I am getting this ONLY when I attempt to click on this website.

I get this same message a lot and like you say. Have to just go have another coffee and wait a while.

Yes, it is a quite common occurrence, and is being caused by an apparent band-width issue. It should go away when we migrate to the new forum and software.
