    AO was down tonite ( I think?)

    Im a nite owl and I was up around 1:30am-2:30am Central time here in Texas... and AO was down I think, I got a SQL database error ( im sorry I dont have the whole error I should have written down!) and it wouldnt let me onto the site, it said " please refresh this page and see if it works, and it said the admins had been contacted so I guess they fixed it but, anyway it all started when I clicked on the "tutorials" link on the right of the homepage. It said " No database" so I clicked the back button then the whole site stopped working for me for about any hour but it seems to work now I guess? any thoughts?

    Hey Tex~

    That has been coming up regularly for me

    In the old days I would run "repair database" then "compact/compress database" and that usually sorted it out.................but I have no idea what they use here

    EDIT: a defragmentation also can help, and look if there is enough freespace on the server...............I get very nervous when that falls below 20% because your os and DB tools don't have enough working space?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    I wouldn't care if they would go into 'maintenance mode' for a full day if it has to to fix the problems.

    The thing is... only Shrekkie seems to be causing the problem. So it's rather curious as to what's happened to the account specifically that has caused it. I know that mnstrgrl is working on it so patience..

    Hi MsM,

    Nope...I've been getting those messages too...before I knew of Shrekkie's problem...but If you hit the back button it takes you there...

    eg. I recently ( tonight ) got one of those messages while trying to post...hit the back button and there was my post...posted normally.

    Eg
