Forum error - intermittent

Post by imtim » Sat May 19, 2012 12:46 pm

You may recently have seen the following forum error when you try to access the forum:

General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Unknown MySQL server host 'mysql' (-1) [2005]

Yahoo hosts our forum and we are certain it is something on their side, but they have not yet been able to resolve it.

The error will often clear if you try to refresh the webpage, so you may need to do that for now.

We will continue our approach with Yahoo to get them to fix it, but we do not know how long this might take.

Sorry for the inconvenience!
