Vienna's Scrapbook currently inaccessible!

Postby Rotkehlchen » Sun Aug 19, 2007 6:20 pm

Hallo Eric,

Can't currently access Vienna's Scrapbook. All attempts result in the error message

WordPress wrote:WordPress

Can’t select database

We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the vt_wordpress database.

* Are you sure it exists?
* On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_wordpress. Could that be the problem?

If you don't know how to setup a database you should contact your host. If all else fails you may find help at the WordPress Support Forums.

Has the server crashed (?Diet Coke in the motherboard)?

Has the Scrapbook database (temporarily I hope) disappeared?

Or is Vienna writing up some new entries?

I do hope someone can repair it...

All the best
~ R

Looks like the SQL database just needs a little kick. Hopefully.
