  Run the server in debugging mode to see why.  You can use "raddebug"
on a live server.

  Also, if there are no DB handles... check the database.  It's likely
broken / slow / whatever.

  The default configuration logs to the "detail" file.  If you configure
SQL, the default configuration logs to both SQL and "detail".  If one
fails, it still logs to the other.

  So... what changes did you make to the default configuration?
