I am wanting to have a test in the main login page of my site that would test to make sure that a connection to the database could be acquired. If not, then I would like to redirect to a page telling the user that the site is temporally down and to please check back later. My problem is that I am not sure how to go about doing this. Would I need to set up error trapping<BR>on my connection? Anyone out there that has ever implemented this or knows how to go about implementing this I would really appreciate any help you could offer.<BR><BR><BR>Thanks,<BR><BR>Shannon Hunter<BR>Aperture - CVO<BR>Information Systems<BR>shunter@aperture-cvo.com<BR>
