    I woke up this morning to find my forums broken, and it is a problem with the MySQL database. This is the source code of the error page:

    HTML:
    An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later.
    <!-- Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) -->
    What happened, and what needs to be done to fix it? Is it a problem with my server, or some kind of internal problem?

    Sounds like a problem with your host. Not xenforo.

    XenForo is loaded, trying to connect to the database, which it can't.
    The MySQL database is down. Should fix itself when it restarts, if it doesn't - contact the hosting provider, or restart the MySQL database server.
