Problem with posting

I had this error just now, and couldn't post for a while:

Warning: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) in /usr/local/apache/sites/dvdtalk.com/htdocs/forum/admin/db_mysql.php on line 40

Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) in /usr/local/apache/sites/dvdtalk.com/htdocs/forum/admin/db_mysql.php on line 40

There seems to have been a slight problem with the database.
Please try again by pressing the refresh button in your browser.

An E-Mail has been dispatched to our Technical Staff, who you can also contact if the problem persists.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

I've had that problem before. I think it corrected itself in a matter of minutes, but I can't remember for sure.

I had only seen it a few times in the last couple years or so, so it's no biggie.
