    I go to my site and I get the error "no database selected"

    I run phpadmin click on my db and it says "no tables in db"

    I freak out and have a heart attack.

    send off an email to the emergency address... go through 5 minutes of agony and he writes back... the db is still there... full with the info

    It seems somehow the pw got changed... but I'm happy. So happy. I woulda died if it was gone.

    its about 60mb of data in the db... I don't wan't to dump that that often...

    Ya I know its still having the problem

    Its something like they switched to a new control panel (thats killer btw) and my db isn't on the new system. So the admin guy is transferring all the stuff right now. Then when he's done I have to change my connection strings to the new db.... but atleast I didn't lose info.

    I don't really blame them though. I noticed it in the middle of the night and got ahold of tech support in 5 minutes.
