My host moved hogwartsbynight.com to a new server. Since then we get constant 503 errors without the host able to figure out why. Also, a member using a subscription had PayPal auto refund her attempt to subscribe to something, she hasn't asked for a refund.

Any advice?

What does your error log show when a 503 error occurs? Are these errors constant or do they happen on random parts of the forum? Did they move you to another shared server or a cloud server? Have you run the system requirements test on the new server? Who is the host?

The issue is all over the board.

Host: https://www.tmdhosting.com

They moved us from a shared server to a cloud. I've not run the systme requirements test yet, how do I do that again?

The System Requirements Test is a 3rd party script, available at UBBWiki. The test will also tell you if they're running PHP7, which is not supported at all at this juncture (though you'd think that the missing mysql_connect command error would be shown if it was PHP7)

The error message you supplied is saying that the forums cannot connect to the database, the error is server related:
Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (11 "Resource temporarily unavailable")

It looks like you're having several issues that are all presenting at once (MySQL server included), but these are all server side errors and have nothing to do with UBB.threads. When your site was migrated to this cloud server were the configuration files populated with the correct paths to the resources on the new machine?

I'm looking at your forums right now and everything seems to be running, I'm able to access "[2 February] 3rd baby scan" and read the entire thread, as well as your active topics page. Isaac was able to access the site without any problems as well.

I can tell you that Cloud Hosting isn't what they sell you it is; they'll claim it'll make your site faster being on non-dedicated hardware, when in actuality they're just selling you caching and more caching (with a side of caching) which isn't good for a live php script that changes based on user events (such as a Bulletin Board); it is instead geared towards WordPress blogs which have largely static content. Updates to content on a cloud host also have to populate from the server cache to the CDN server that your cloud host is using.
