Brought the Joomla site back

The partner site had been down for the past few days, and that gave me a major headache. Tried different things but nothing worked. Googled the issue more and I finally fixed it at noon on January 14, 2013. Few things I learned from this instance,
1. try to google the issue before fixing the issue
2. when you cannot find the solution after spending a long time, stop looking at the problem and come back to it later
3. don’t be afraid to handle problem, the experience you gain will help you to deal with other issues in the future
