    No. Still valid even in vBulletin 5.

    Ok thanks, its says the config.php could be wrong, or mysql has crashed.
    How do i know which it could be? I will call my host if fully necessary but i'd like to try and solve me problem here first.
    my error was:
    The database has failed to connect because you do not have permission to connect to the server. Please confirm the values entered in the includes/config.php file

    Error description: mysqli_real_connect() [function.mysqli-real-connect]: (HY000/2002): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) /home/content/23/7720423/html/includes/class_core.php on line 1317

    What should i look for to correct in the config.php?
    or do you think my MySQL crashed?
    I am really struggling with this, some additional help would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks
