XF 1.4 An unexpected error occurred. Please try again later.

Every now and then I get the following error for the entire site:

An unexpected error occurred. Please try again later.
Checking the error log, no errors are found or recorded.

This happened just now (sites are back up though) and it happened on both my XF installs, one is a convert from SMF, the other is a fresh install.

sicycling.com and securityofficerforum.com are the forums.

I've checked my other sites when the two XF forums were down and all of them worked correctly without any issues.

Any ideas?

If it's happening randomly then it is likely server related.
Ask your host to check the server error logs.

The next time it happens, view the page source and the reason may be listed.

If both sites are down at the same time and nothing was recorded in the database, my money would be on a database issue.
