Problems connecting to chat / main site / forum

#1
Over the last 2 hours I've had problems connecting to all 3 parts of canta-per-me.net, whilst being able to reach other web sites fine.

One error I received while reloading the forum was:

General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 110 [2013]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.

This problem appears to be affecting other users as well.

^ This usually happens when the host is maintaining / messing with the survers and now Sudrien could probably give you more info on it :)

Between 15:00 and 15:05 UTC on 09 January 2015, connectivity was lost to the main site, forum and chat for a few minutes.

From Firefox, reconnecting to chat seems to take ages or several attempts after restarting the browser.

The main site and forum load fine though.

It doesn't work for me either (same error). In fact, the main site didn't load for me for most of today, with different errors. And when it did load this morning, all of the image references to images.canta-per-me.net were broken.

I'm also getting a lot of images failing to load on the forum - it appears that the proxy in use can't handle all the requests that it gets - e.g. one failed image load is for this:

Code:
https://forum.canta-per-me.net/proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fscontent-a.xx.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-xaf1%2Ft31.0-8%2F10442992_962547241000_6372461577077556465_o.jpg&hash=fd3cc7209301bc54d8fe94fc3791f92a
The actual image:

https://scontent-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xaf1/t31.0-8/10442992_962547241000_6372461577077556465_o.jpg

which loads fine, after which the original image loads as well.

The onions on the forum aren't showing for me.

One such onion had the URL https://canta-per-me.net/inc/smileys/hero.gif (the main site which I can't load).

Trying to get that image directly:

Code:
wget https://canta-per-me.net/inc/smileys/hero.gif

I'm getting 403 forbidden errors trying to connect to the main site with chromium.
This looks like an IP blacklist to me (maybe due to a misconfigured firewall on the server?). After a forced disconnect of my DSL router to get a different IP address, everything is working fine now.

Thanks, that fix worked for me also.

Old IP address: 121.45.79.54 (showing on blocklists for l2.apews.org pbl.spamhaus.org zen.spamhaus.org )
New IP address: 118.210.119.93 (showing on exactly the same blocklists)

So the problem is dependent on the IP address but it's now clear why it's being blocked.

The Block lists entries were found using http://www.whatismyipaddress.com then selecting "Learn More About This IP" and "Blacklist Check".

I seem to be having trouble accessing the forums form Google Chrome. I happens to me on a couple of platforms (Computer, Tablet, Phone) and multiple occasions (pretty much any time I've tried to access it on Chrome). Would like to know if other people have encountered this in the past and if the only solution is to switch Internet browsers.

@noGenerators I usually use iceweasel (firefox) to access the forum and chat but just tried chromium (chrome) without problems. Someone had DNS issues last night and using a different DNS entry fixed things for them.
