  • DB Error: Unknown MySQL Server Host

    I'm getting the following database error:

    "Unknown MySQL server host"

    The error report that I get emailed to me says that the error is occurring on line 311 of includes/class_core.php.

    I know you set the database name in config.php, and I know that value is correct. Could the port be incorrect? Right now it's set at the default value: 3306.

    Also of note: it seems, at least to me, that this is happening randomly. Sometimes the forums work fine, other times I am getting the error.

    Any ideas?

    Are your forums working most of the time? If so, then this is a temporary server issue.

      Thanks for the quick reply. I just bought the web hosting yesterday, and I bought and downloaded vB yesterday as well. So I can't really say whether this is just a hiccup or not. I do know that it is happening quite often since I have made the forums live. Like I said above (after an edit), it's not a constant error. Sometimes it's fine, sometimes I get the error. In the past...I don't know...30 minutes or so, I've received about 25 emails with this error. Granted a lot of those are probably me refreshing. I can't seem to find any kind of pattern to it, though. Is this something I should take up with my web host?

        If your forums work at all, then this is a temporary server issue. The fact that it happens this frequently would be a major concern to me. A well-maintained server would not do this.

        I would definitely contact the host. If they can't resolve this I'd find a more suitable host quickly before the data is corrupted.

          Ok that's what I was afraid of. Thanks a lot for the quick replies. Unfortunately I literally just bought this web hosting. However, the good news is that my forums just went live about an hour ago so there's only like 2 threads. So losing all my posts won't be a huge deal. Thanks again.
