DigitalPoint Forums Suffers Major Outage

Digital Point Forums LogoDigitalPoint Forums, one of our main sources of search news and topics, is currently suffering a major outage. Since last night, the forum has been offline due to what appears to be database issues.

It appears to me, from the VBulleting software error message that the database server is having major issues. Either it was some how disconnected from the web servers or it went offline. Here is the current error message:

The database has encountered a problem.

DigitalPoint Forums launched in 2004, and quickly gained in membership for many reasons. One major reason was for all the popular and free tools Shawn, DigitalPoint's founder, created. The other was that he was the first to come up with the AdSense revenue sharing model on his forum.

In any event, it is currently down. Shawn seems to be away at the moment. So many of those who are dependent on DigitalPoint Forums will need to take a minor vacation until the site comes back online.

Update: DP was back online as of midnight last night. No official word on what caused the database issues.
