almighty pokemaster:

Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through
socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) in
/srv/www/pokemondb.net/web/pokebase/qa-include/qa-db.php on line 66
Could not establish database connection. Please check the username,
password and hostname in the config file, and if necessary set up the
appropriate MySQL user and privileges.

this is the message that shows up when i press the button for the q&a section. does anyone else have problems with that? if yes, could you fix it when you have time?

thanks :D

Yeah, this is happening with me too, wasn't sure if I was the only one.
So I'm not the only one...
Chat, Meta and RMT are all fine for me just PokeBase, I can even get onto my profile and the top scoring users section fine. It doesn’t seem to be affecting everyone because I've just talked to a couple of users in chat and they say it's not affecting them.
K so it's only if you click the button I can get through through my profile (or you can click all activity when in chat). Though it seems the button it broken
http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/activity try use this link for now. I think this happens when the sites updating or something.
Same here. MySqueal again.
Got this too.

It's an annoying problem with our server. If the page doesn't load properly for some reason, the server caches it and keeps showing the error page even when the problem is fixed...

It works now! :D   But it seemed like it was a problem with the button as i was able to reach the section via my profile and the link that blobyblob posted.
