My SQL Error - Oufft - 2016-11-09

hi, today out of no where when I tried accessing my forums this appeared:

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' (2)Query:[READ] Unable to connect to MySQL server

and ideas why and how to fix this? I just don't understand because I haven't touched any settings or anything.

Your MySQL server is down. Are you on shared hosting or a VPS/dedicated? If you're on shared you'll need to ask your host, if not you'll need to contact your server support if you don't know how to fix.
