An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later.

I just thought McCain was starting his jet in Hell. Guess that's why I never worked in IT.

Nice fix though, but pls. don't let it go to your head, I don't wanna sound like a BF.

keefer,

we have been getting crushed from overseas for quite some time now,
constantly probing, etc.

it was not a surprise to me and it is now affecting our backup.

so I need to come up with a fix for the backup without having to buy a ton more storage.

even our host states it is a big db, when they host oodles and oodles of sites

So? You need your own server or a stack of them?

Same here, as Scorp says, I guess we'll need to wait until things stabilize. Posts are being applied even though we're getting a server error message.

Be patent. I'm blaming Trump!

The outage coincided with the usual morning 'dump'. Can't verify that in this case because I ignore it now, but it seems like a pretty good place to start. I know my computer loading issues vanished after activating that magical 'GONG' feature.

Try that Scorp… Worked for me.

Been so happy since I took EO's advise! Wish I had thought of that sooner.
