    If you go to my home page http://www.jigglemywiggle.com then an error will pop up saying it cannot connect to my database. But when you go to http://www.jigglemywiggle.com/index.php then it will show my blog fine. What in the world is the problem here. Its killing ME!

    i guess where I am it wont connect to database. I am at a school right now and they block everything. It worked on firefox for me under a proxy but on IE without one it wouldnt so that would be my conclusion. But i wonder why would it load it under index.php but not under my domain. Curious!

    It doesn't matter where you are. It's not like your local browser is connecting to the database. It's the server where the website resides that does that. It could have been that your webhost was doing something that caused the database to not be available for a short time. But the proxy at school shouldn't have an effect on being able to connect to the database since it doesn't.

    very true. But dont you think it was a little weird how it worked fine on Mozilla with a proxy compared to IE without one. It shouldn't affect it true but it is still a little odd. Oh well It works fine now. Thanx for your help.

    Actualy it makes perfect sense. If the site had been accessed when the db was unavailable, the proxy would have cached the resulting error page. What got stred in the cache would have been served upagain in later access to the site. However, other browsers that do not use the proxy would have seen what you expected. Eventualy what is in the cache expired and the proxy server re-grabbed what was available.

    The reverse is also true, if the first time the proxy hit it and it worked, then the proxy would have cached that. Then if you hit it w/o the proxy and it had gone down, it would give the appearance that it was working in one browser and not the other
