Sudden Breakdown

edited May 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Everything was running fine and then all of a sudden this morning my forums stopped working. As far as I can tell there's no difference between my backups and what I have now. I just don't know where to start looking! Here's the gazillion error messages. Any ideas of where to start? Thank you!!

  • Just an idea: Your MySQL database may have had a limit that was reached, and so now your host has denied access to it.

    If it happened spontaneously, then it's either caused by a cron job, time sensitive php, or an overflowed MySQL db, among a few other things.
  • What appears to be happening is the SQL statement is not being built properly. The message is: 'as DiscussionID, t. as FirstCommentID, t. as AuthUserID, t. as WhisperUserID,' AFAIK, "t." is not valid. It should be "t.X", but what X is and why it's not being substituted all of a sudden, I don't know. My other mysql sites are working fine.
  • Make sure your appg/database.php is intact?
  • wouldn't it be conf/database.php ?
  • appg/database.php and conf/database.php are identical and as posted above.
  • Then thats your problem--appg/database.php should look like this: appg contains all the defaults--among those the default names for each table.
  • Hoh boy. Thank you so much! I have no idea how on earth that file got altered. I'll have to check with my co-admin. Thank you for your help!
