Can't connect to the database
Last modified: 2014-10-12 18:48:24 EDT
Description of problem:
For ca. the last 1/2++ hour, attempts to access bugzilla.redhat.com where responded with:
Can't connect to the database.
Error: Host 'bzweb01.app.bz.hst.phx2.redhat.com' is blocked because of many connection errors; unblock with 'mysqladmin flush-hosts'
Is your database installed and up and running?
Do you have the correct username and password selected in localconfig?
For help, please send mail to the webmaster (firstname.lastname@example.org), giving this error message and the time and date of the error.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
No idea. This error had persisted for ca. 1/2 hour, thoughout which bugzilla had been completely inaccessible for me. After having relaunched firefox, it just started to work again - Could be co-incidence of unrelated events, I don't know.
