Yeah we had a few timeouts at the same time.

I pinged them a message but i know the reply will be something along the lines of

"yeah should be working now"

I'll then press them again and they'll blame a service restart.

My guess is that it's hosted on a specific virtual machine and every now and again it's patched and rebooted, which gives a 3-4 mins downtime. Obviously this shouldn't actually be the case... but it happens every 2-3 months.

Hello,

Thank you for your update.

Inedeed, there were MySQL overload which caused several connections to your database dropped:

2021-02-16 9:41:46 140583578679040 [Warning] Aborted connection 9354116 to db: 'revtothe_phpb103' user: 'revtothe_phpb103' host: 'localhost' (Got an error reading communication packets) 2021-02-16 9:41:46 140582727898880 [Warning] Aborted connection 9354045 to db: 'revtothe_phpb103' user: 'revtothe_phpb103' host: 'localhost' (Got an error reading communication packets) 2021-02-16 9:41:46 140584283576064 [Warning] Aborted connection 9353868 to db: 'revtothe_phpb103' user: 'revtothe_phpb103' host: 'localhost' (Got an error reading communication packets)

It's back to normal, we will continue to monitor service status.
