  • Vbulletin suddenly throwing mysql errors

    I'm running vbulletin 3.83 and recently moved one of my sites to a shared server. It has been working fine there for about 3 weeks. Then suddenly about 30 minutes ago it started sending me emails with lots and lots of mysql errors. The messages I'm receiving are:

    Code:
    Database error in vBulletin :
    
    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' (13) /home/mydomain/public_html/vbulletindomain.com/forums/includes/class_core.php on line 311
    
    MySQL Error   : 
    Error Number  : 
    Request Date  : Tuesday, December 8th 2009 @ 04:21:37 PM
    Error Date    : Tuesday, December 8th 2009 @ 04:21:37 PM
    Script        : http://www.vbulletindomain.com/pp-514/showphoto.php/photo/161/size/big
    Referrer      : 
    IP Address    : 76.249.67.27
    Username      : 
    Classname     : vB_Database
    MySQL Version :
    That "http://www.vbulletindomain.com/pp-514/showphoto.php/photo/161/size/big" is acutally a URL inside of photopost's part of the site.; but the error is coming from vbulletin itself. Does anyone have any idea what's causing this and HOW to work around it since I can't even login as the admin while these errors are happening?

    Thanks!

    "Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (13)"

    This error is a problem with your vB installation connecting to the database as the connection to it is down.

    If this continues to happen you will need to speak to your host about it as it's not a vBulletin issue
