    When I try and go to www.macrumors.com I get this error 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

    What is causing this????

    My guess is the forums are on different servers or don't use the same database as the front page.

    In anycase it looks like it can't connect to a machine, it's a LAN ip so I couldn't ping it to see if it was actually a machine down.

    Oh well at least the forums are still up :)


    Sites that are down:
    http://macbytes.com/
    http://macrumors.com/

    I received the error message as well. Navigating directly to the forums seems to work fine.

    I can't get on macrumors

    I have tried from my 2 macs and the 2 pc's in my house, but everytime I go macrumors.com I get "Warning: mysql_connect(): Host 'xxx.xxx.x.x' 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" Anyone have any ideal?

    I have 15GB of free bandwidth on my server that I am not using right now, so if they go to a text-only front page like they usually do for big events maybe that could help them out?

    I've got the same problem--I think it's a server problem.

    Strange to see the front page crashed while the forums are still running.

    So I'm not the only one with this problem? I was thinking it was something my connection did that caused my ip to be blocked.

    I thought that as well ;-) Glad to see it's not just me.

    The main page and the forums are hosted on different servers.

    There is also a discussion going on here.

    Mod note: The two threads are now merged.

    I've got 64GB. But I don't think that is the problem I think something just crashed. The site load shouldn't have been that high. Normally it's the forums that slashed.

    Yep,

    Macrumors front page is down. Funny that the forums are still up.

    Anyway, I guess they fix it soon.

    they're on separate servers, so they stay independent of one another.
    We're looking into it...

    The server was probably trying to send out too much data too quickly due to WWDC craze.


    I got the error too.

    Got the same error message, but now it's working. I was on my PC, so I figured it was just Windows :D. Seriously though, sometimes I just can't navigate anything on the internet on my desktop and then I pull out my PB and everything is fine :confused:.

    Oh well... :rolleyes:

    The problem had to do with the article database, not with the number of visitors or views. I, for one, expect MacRumors to manage fine on Monday, using the usual low-bandwidth presentation we've had for past keynote speeches.
