hello , I probably did something to my environment because when I run my GAZEBO now I get this:

Error [ModelDatabase.cc:228] No tag in the model database database.config found here[http://gazebosim.org/models/]

Error [ModelDatabase.cc:287] Unable to download model manifests

I'm using GAZEBO 2.2 and ROS Indigo on UBUNTU 14.04

thanks for helping...

Looks like the model database server went down. Can you try again?

Tanks Nate, its working now. How can I check it next time or restart this server manually?

The fix requires us (OSRF) to reset a server that Gazebo relies upon. If you notice this again, please contact us and we'll resolve the issue. A longer term, and more reliable, solution is in the works.

Hey I am having the same problem as 'benshaul'. The server that Gazebo relies on seems to be down again. In insert tab all I see is ' Connecting to model database...'

Bam got hit just now with this. Maybe we should start a contribution system..if you contribute you get the good server. :)

This happens whenever the servers are down. They should be back up.
