Hi all
I am hoping that someone has seen this. I have a site that crashed yesterday and when restored from backups, crashed again within an hour of restoring from a backup that was made about 12 hours before the crash. I am certain that nobody was in the Admin Panel at the time and there were no changes or upgrades to addons in the past week.

The site is inaccessible including the Admin Panel. I've included below the error that I see when I try to login to the admin panel.

NOTE: I have a bug report with the XF people and don't want to duplicate that but I am hoping that someone in the community has seen this and has some idea of what happened.

The only additional information is that there may be an association between this and ArrowChat, but I am not certain.

I would suspect server issues more than anything -- for example, the server's disk being full, leading to corruption of MySQL data.

Thanks mike, my ISp is saying there are no server issues, they are saying its application. I'm going to disable all the addons once they restore it again
