    Database error

    Sometimes my forums get a db error. It usually would happen during a high traffic time, but now even happens at times like 1:00am when theres not as many users on. The db error I just got day was this:

    mysql_connect() [<a href='function.mysql-connect'>function.mysql-connect</a>]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (11)

    Can anyone help me out and tlel me what causes that error and any ways that it can be fixed? I have a dedicated server, so I should be able to configure something, if suggested.

    Assuming the db info in your config.php file is correct, this is a server issue. Please see this page for the causes of this error:
