I just got this on my forums

MyBB has experienced an internal SQL error and cannot continue.

SQL Error:
2002 - Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (111)
[READ] Unable to connect to MySQL server

What does that mean exactly?

The MySQL server is down, it seems. Contact your host.
Contact host or if on VPS run command:

service mysql restart
