phpBB being hacked again?

Post by Atlantis Services »

Was on the site and suddenly the forum started to load slow, then I've got errors, and now it pings out. Anyone?
phpBB : Critical Error

Could not connect to the database
Was the last thing I was able to get. It comes & goes (a lot)

Yes, I'm also getting a critical error :/ Let's hope not it just slows down 3.0 even more :(

I highly doubt it is being hacked. Give it a break guys, like 500 people are communication with this one server at once, so big deal if it goes down for 5 mins. :roll:

It's back up. It has happened before. I really don't think they are being hacked.

The error seems to be gone, but they still ping out once in a while & load slow at time. Guess it's either a dns problem on my end or as stated, mvoing things around.
