  • vB database is incompatible afier server upgrades

    I'm stumped on this one. Today, I asked my host if they could help me with the php/mysql software upgrades in preperation for vB4 Suite. To make a long story short, they upgraded my server immediately. Now my vB 3.8.3 database (created with mysql 4.1.22) is incompatible with mysql 5.1.37. I have a copy of the 3.8.3 database on my local machine that I created last Friday.

    Is there a way to upgrade the database from mysql 4.1.22 to 5.1.37?

    The php installation was also upgraded from 5.2.4 to 5.2.11.

    What exactly is the problem? Are you getting errors or what? It should be just fine.

        This does not mean that your database is bad, just that you're using the wrong information to connect to the database.

          This isn't incompatibility, this is user error. You either don't have the correct username/password in your config.php file, or you don't have the correct permissions set for the user to the database.
