I am able to access the ACP just fine and I am also able to view the Main Forums page but when I choose a Topic I get the following

General Error

Did you start getting this error after an update to 3.0.4 using Automatic update?

After backing up your existing files

I would try downloading a fresh copy of those files (assuming 3.0.4 version) and replacing the ones on your server. Those files being the ones listed in the error message:

This is how i fixed my problem. I made a backup of my sql database. I then downloaded the full 3.0.4 install and replaced all the files in the error message with new versions. Its been working with no more sql errors for a week now.

I also wanted to add that I had this error too. I fixed it by using the suggestion above, I downloaded a fresh copy of the latest files, and replaced just those files mentioned in the error message. Works great now.
