    1and1 is NOT a normal host nor do they provide normal servers with industry standard settings. I used them for a whole week and will NEVER go back.

    Everything seems to be working just fine now, thanks.

    In case anyone else has 1and1 hosting, I had to set the host to 'localhost' and port to '/tmp/mysql5.sock' to get it to work. Setting port to the actual port number failed. This means vb began calling it as 'localhost:/tmp/mysql5.sock' instead of 'localhost:/tmp/mysql5.sock:3316'

    See this page for the causes of this error: http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/cantconnect
    You will most likely need to talk to your host in order to fix the issue.

    I mean vBulletin refuses to access the database, returns the basic error

    Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql5.sock:3316'
    vBulletin 3.8 was out way before MySQL 5 was out, I am wondering if it can even connect at all.

    What do you mean vBulletin can't access it?

    Upgrading MySQL 4 db to MySQL 5 with version 3.8

    I have vbulletin version 3.8 installed using a MySQL 4 database, and my server is upgrading to MySQL 5 and I need to switch.

    I exported the database and imported it into a new MySQL 5 database via ssh command line, and changed the database un/pw/port in the config.php file, but vbulletin cant access it.

    Do you have ideas what I am doing wrong? Only have 3 days to fix this before MySQL 4 is removed from the server.
