**** If you're still experiencing "Database Error" ****

Some people might still be experiencing "Database Error". There is nothing I can do for you from my end. All errors are corrected, all upgrades are done. If you still see that message, it is because your Internet Provider hasn't flushed their DNS servers cache yet and what you are seeing is cached information. The only real thing that can be done is wait it out for the propagation to take place.

However, there are a few things you can try on your end.
- Try installing new browser that has never accessed this site before
- Try logging in on a different network, (mcdonalds, library, etc
- Clear your cache, cookies, temporary internet files
- Reset your browser to factory settings
- If you're running a microsoft computer, try the following things
    Run the CMD command as an adminstrator and type: ipconfig /release (hit enter), then run ipconfig /renew (hit enter), then run ipconfig /flushdns (hit enter)
- Unplug your router and modem for 15 minutes
- Reboot your computer
- Plug router and modem in and wait 10 minutes to try and do anyting

If none of this works, try contacting your ISP and see if they can flush your DNS.

If all above don't work, you'll just have to wait it out. There is absolutely nothing I can do. I have test probably 20 different accounts on my end and all worked flawlessly. That means it is not a problem with the board, but a problem with the internet provider and propagation. If I logged in to your account on my end and seen Database errors as you have, it would be on my end. But since I log in to your account on my computer and am able to do everything, it is not a board problem. Hope that makes sense.

Propagation explanation:
Internet propagation, also known as DNS propagation, is the process of updating Domain Name System (DNS) records across the internet. DNS records are essential for connecting domain names to their corresponding IP addresses. When changes are made to DNS records, name servers around the world need to be updated, which can take anywhere from 48 hours to 10 days or more, depending on ISP's. During this time, a domain and its emails may not work consistently, and a website may not be accessible from all devices or may appear insecure.

Odd that worked my last couple of attempts failed.Will try again.

I have been away from home since March, on my laptop. No faults with this site.
I flew home, without the laptop; using my desktop which hasn't been lit since March, maybe hasn't been here for a couple months before that. No problems with either; When was the database issue first seen?
Academic really, just throwing out a point of data.
