Okay....had the board up and running, no problems. Then all of a sudden I am getting this error on trying to connect to the forum. Any suggestions????

Warning: Can't connect to MySQL server on '209.54.140.4' (61) in /usr/home/team2002/www.team2002.info/data/include/db.inc on line 26

The problem is that the MySQL server has had all the databases
deleted, including the users, etc. It looks like the tables were
all dropped. In addition there is a file that is now not being
accessed correctly for the MySQL server to work properly. I'm
trying to find out what happened so that it can be prevented in
the future. It is even possible that the forum software (since it had the permission to drop tables) could be responsible. Is this a known bug and can it be fixed??

Forum code not only does not have any DROP TABLE code but it doesn't even do ALTER on any SQL fields.

The best solution to this problem is to restrict DROP TABLE/DATABASE access to just certain user/users so that normal sql users do not have access to do. This was accidental or intentional deletion of tables cannot occur unless done via a proper account.
