This is a very odd error that only I seem to be able to reproduce.
First some info which may help in figuring this out....
I use Firefox 1.0.4, on Debian Sarge. WP 18.104.22.168 -- now to the problem.
I'm hosting my website with Bluehost.com, http://myownworld.org, and for some reason the Website will not load when I type the URL "without" the WWW. portion. It forces me to use the 'www.' portion in the URL, and it bugs me.
If I attempt the non-www url format, I get the whole 30-sec timeout, "error establishing a database connection". Any other computer can access my website perfect, www's or no w's.
I've looked through the FireFox 'about:config' options, to no avail. I've looked through the BlueHost options and no luck there either.
Also.. I know it's not just BlueHost because I previously hosted with GoDaddy and had the exact same problem.
Could it be that I have Apache2 installed on this box here, and it's interfering with the page display?
Help would appreciated. :)
