Is Hobbes down for you?
« on: February 04, 2013, 07:43:45 pm »

I have been trying to get on
Hobbes today, but I have had no luck.

This error message gets returned;


Quote
Fatal error: Call to undefined method MDB2_Error::query() in /home/archiver/private/includes/files_db.php on line 182

It seems like a database error to me... "MDB2_Error".

Has anyone else had this experience?

Hi Ben

Yes, looks like a problem with hobbes...

Have you sent an email to let them know?

There is no way of finding out their E-mail address at this point...

... a person would have to have had it before it went down.

They know.

Somebody was attacking the server so some changes were made, Curtis has cleared the database connections logjam, which means its back up :)

Hi Ben

WRT hobbes email check the bottom of the "Welcome to Hobbes" page - http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/ - and you will see email contact details there.

Hey, Pete. *waves*

There is no problem in finding the Hobbes administrator's E-mail address...

... when the site is up... hehehehe  8) (and there is no need for it)...

...but...

...you cannot access the Hobbes "front page" when the site is down, (and when the need is there).

But thanks anyway. 

I'll file it away in case there is a future need.
;)

Hi Ben

Sorry I misunderstood the problem - mainly because I could get the main page without any problem but trying any of the links eg /pub/os2 returned the error message you posted.
