Critical Database Error (Or something else)





Scott
A few days ago I got this in my inbox:

" Nobody
<nobody@host.frihost.net> to me
There has been a problem with the database!
MySQL reported:
Lost connection to MySQL server during query"

Whenever I try to access my forums now I get a "500 Internal Server Error". I didn't change anything for this to occur, it just started happening.

Is anyone else having this problem? Is there a way to get my forum back up and running?

My forum is located here: http://www.sgn.frihost.net/smfforums/


EDIT: After actually reading the error message it seems that the email and the error I'm getting now may be completely unrelated.

There seems to be something wrong with your file permissions. I can create a new account for you if you want, just backup your files.

It could be a DB USER access error combined with a CHMOD error / Corrupt Code if you have looked into that... Hope it helps!

Thanks guys, I got the problem figured out now. The index.php was chmoded to 777, I changed it to 755 and everything was dandy. I'm kind of wondering how it got changed though.

The 777 could have been me trying to make it work. But that was after you posted in here, so the problem was something else.
