    Not sure if you guys were aware of this or not (I didn't see any threads made), it may have just been a random database error or you guys may have been working on something.

    http://xenforo.com/community/ - An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later.
    http://xenforo.com/ - An unexpected exception occurred.

    That was happening about an hour ago. All good now tho.

    Thanks, we were aware.
    It was caused by another site which sits on the same server.
     
  3. Is it know what causes the error? I received "An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later." on our own boards (rc1) twice: once when deleting a number of forums, another when switching for a style to another.

    The errors here to which the OP's post refers was related to a vB site, not a XenForo site.
    It's just that they sit on the same server and there was a knock-on effect.
     
  5. We have a vB site on our server as well (3.8.2) but its using a different database, not sure if one can affect the other directly.

    If the vB site used a lot of server resources for whatever reason then it could quite easily have an effect.
