I know, there have been some problems with db4free.net during the week that I attended the MySQL Users Conference. Unfortunately, I didn't have a laptop with me and had no access to the Internet most of the time. I could find out on Tuesday (thanks to Sheeri who borrowed me her laptop!) that the MySQL 5.0 server was down and managed to start it up again. When I returned home Saturday evening, the MySQL 5.0 server was down again. Strangely enough, the MySQL 5.1.10 server which was built from the development source, seemed to work great all week long.
Today I have updated the MySQL 5.0 server to 5.0.21 and installed the lately released MySQL 5.1.9 server instead of the 5.1.10 development snapshot. I hope that the problems are solved now, but I'm back online now to keep an eye on the happenings on the server.
