The main reason for this error is due to the postgres database having issues.  Usually it is because the database is not running.  There are a few things you can try . . .

  1. Log in to the server using SSH (as root) and try stopping and starting the postgres database:
    1. service postgresql stop
    2. service postgresql start
  2. Log in to the server using SSH (as root) and check to see if the /var partition is full using the 'df -h' command.  If /var is 100% full, it will need to be cleaned up before the postgresql service can be restarted.  Use this article for assistance on cleaning up /var.
  3. Reboot the server and check if the error has gone away once the server is back up.
