Why do I keep getting this error crap?
« on: August 14, 2006, 09:36:01 PM »
I get this error pretty frequently:

"Connection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later."

I was typing a response hit post and then I got this message and I lost everything I typed.

I dont feel like retyping it all.  Im pissed.

Thats happened to me alot lately also.

I close the window and open a new browser and its usually ok. But it does suck when you are typing a post and it happens.

I haven't been using the forums long enough to experience this problem but as an anal-retentive I often select all of the text I've written and copy it to the clipboard (using MSWindows vernacular -- your verbiage may vary with Mac or LINUX or something else).

I have a bad habit of composing an epic message (email, forum post, web page, whatever) and getting distracted for a few minutes or a few hours.  As long as one of my cats hasn't walked on the keyboard in the interim I can preserve at least part of the text if I've been disconnected or an error message occurs after I hit "send/post/reply/etc."

For instance, I just copied the paragraphs above so when I click "post" if an error occurs at least humanity can be assured those precious words are not lost.  I know everyone will sleep easier tonight with this knowledge.

Same here with me the last few weeks it has said server is down unable to connect. Also start a thread and get ready to post and it freezes up and everything I type diappears. So are they updating the server or is this always going to keep happening?

Yeah me too...I just assume it was another DIAL UP connection problem.  The site breaks up too. :o

Hmmm, I haven't had a problem (as yet).

Have ya'll checked your virus/spyware software?

Those are very often the culprits of most hassles for connections or staying on sites.

Also, your "history" and "cookies" might have issues as well.  I try to "clean up" our comp every several days.

I beleive this setting can be turned off in the admin section... I'd have to load my own SMF to check.  It's basically a safe guard so busy boards (like this one) do not overload the server.

What I do... when I write a lengthy post, I write it in Word and then cut and paste it.   ;)

That's exactly what I do on all the forums I use.  It only took losing one or two long messages for me to learn!
