Error 28

Screenshot of Error 28
If you see a message about ‘Error 28’ around the site instead of content, it’s because my host appears to be having database issues. It only appears to be affecting the dynamic pages since they pull content directly from the DB, the static pages are all fine.
Background reading:

Note that this has nothing to do with Section 28.


  1. Didn’t the Conservatives introduce Error 28 because MySQL goes against the (Microsoft SQL Server 2000) Bible?

  2. Maybe you should write a script to do a df -k on the system and then email it to support@ your hosting company everytime you get that error message. Might get them to fix it.
