Not sure what you mean,at least what was happening during the 10 minute wait.
But when you open the forum in the browser.
It should connect to the database in less than seconds.
If it has issues with the database connection.
It will display a generic error instead of the forum immediately .

What were you doing when you waited10 minutes?

Could be some html includes you have added that don't work causing to page to take forever to load and not a database issue..

Well I had php set to 7.0 I went back in and changed it to 5.6 and it immediately took off...I don't know if that had anything to do with it or not.

UBB.threads does not currently run under PHP7, the recommended PHP version would be PHP5.6, or at bare minimum PHP5.3.

There you go.
We can't help much if you don't provide all the details.

It would have helped if you told us you changed to php7 up front.
