We are looking for help from the Metabase community for open source version of Metabase. The error notes:

There was a problem with your question

Most of the time this is caused by an invalid selection or bad input value. Double check your inputs and retry your query.

Here’s the full error message

Host ‘' is blocked because of many connection errors; unlock with ‘mysqladmin flush-hosts’

We have already tried running the suggested command and restarting OS but it didn't change anything. Further, there is no evidence there are too many connections as per mysqladmin given we only have exactly one user logging into the web interface, and using Metabase.

All OS updates have already been applied.

We are not looking to do invasive, non-easily reversible changes at this time (e.g. upgrading Metabase, migrating anything, upgrading version of OS, changing databases, etc.).

We are looking for a simple command that if it doesn't actually work, doesn't further break the situation.

Thanks in advanced, and looking forward to any advice!
