Pervasive SQL database suddenly stopped working

Last Modified: 2016-02-11
Our Pervasive SQL database suddenly stopped working. I can't connect with PCC although I can log on to the Pervasive server and can see that the relevant processes are running. I've restarted the server and the processes.

I get the following error in Access VBA when I try to connect programmatically:

"The ODBC client Interface cannot access the datasource because  SQL connection manager is not running  at the specified port number."
