View Full Version : Trouble accessing MacRumors

Every once in a while (ok twice now) I get a warning page when I try and load the MacRumors website. This is the message:

"Warning: mysql_connect(): Host '192.168.1.4' is blocked because of many connection errors. Unblock with 'mysqladmin flush-hosts' in /home/macrumor/public_html/csspvt/cssdbinit.inc on line 8
Unable to connect to database"

Reloading doesn't help, I just wait a few minutes/hours and then it loads fine.

Is that my end or MacRumors end, and if it is my end, how can I fix it?

Thanks

I got it too.

You can still access the fourms at http://forums.macrumors.com/ because the home page and the forums are on different servers.

I also got this error. Twice earlier this afternoon (Friday, 6 PM EST), and once just now when I hit the "back" button from a post (2:30 AM EST). Weird.

I'm using Safari 1.2.2.

Yeah, I have got this same message from time to time and I am also using 1.2.2 version of Safari. So I wonder if this is a Safari specific problem?

No, whenever that appears it's a server-problem - the error will appear for all browsers. Usually requires some manual intervention from arn to get it working again.

Yes, I have had it and I tried various browsers, machines and OS, and the same error.
So, it not Safari related. Its odd how the forums work but the site does not.

Oh well, hopefully its a problem that can be fixed with an update or upgrade.

FWIW, the forums themselves are starting to flake. I see database errors often now. Also, as visible proof, try searching for previous posts by members with lots (>2000) posts. Try going to Mr. Anderson's page (http://forums.macrumors.com/member.php?u=2649) and looking for his previous posts, for example.

I got that error earlier today.

Problems could be down to the fact that MR is still running the 1st full release of vb3 (3.0.0), current version is 3.0.3 (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?postid=698512).

edit: I actually get it every time if i try to do a search for my own posts. do'h! (http://forums.macrumors.com/search.php?do=finduser&u=4465)
