Problem accessing backer panel

So I got an email a while back about the backer panel being updated. I was too busy that day to do anything with it then, and proceeded to forget about it. I tried to do that today, and when I try to log in to my panel I get this error:

mysqli::mysqli(): (HY000/2002): Connection timed out in /home/gmtower/towerunite.com/backer/pages/mysql.php on line 6
Connection failed: Connection timed out

is there something I’m doing wrong here?
(I’d also like to apologize in advance if I miss replies, I’m kind of a massive flake and get easily distracted)

Strange, I can login to it just fine.

@macdguy, any ideas?

Odd, now things seem to be working just fine, musta been a server problem (or more likely a PEBCAK error that coincidentally fixed itself)
