Database problem? New WP2 version problem? (3 posts)

    My site doesn't seem to be connecting. It's intermittent, I've contacted my host and they don't seem to see the problem.

    I don't know if it's a database disconnection or WTF is going on but it was fine 2 hours ago and now it only shows me the header of the page and then the date and some html after the date. This same problem happened a few days ago.

    I've got plugins that are, according to this site, compatible with WP2, and it worked earlier so I don't know what's going on now, but my host says it's not a problem they can replicate on their end and I have the problem using both browsers - not showing the posts, or sidebar or footer.

    Oh and I can't even get into the control panel to look at stuff - but the last time I could, everything looked ok.

    Can anyone help me with this?

    If it's intermittent then it's almost definitely the host problem - your code does not change while their server environment does. And all hosts say it's not their problem first time around.
    I would email them again pointing out that if you can connect and then you cannot and you have changed nothing then it is their problem.

    Thanks, Podz, it's the same thing I'm thinking, I just don't understand how they can say 'everything's showing up fine here' and not be able to replicate the problem.

    I was able to get into the admin panel for a minute and I turned off a couple of plugins. When I turned off the CoppermineSC plugin everything started working again.

    I don't know if that's a coincidence of time (the site was finally functional) or if it's to do with that plugin connecting to another database. I'll contact the creator and see what he thinks.

    Thanks again.
