    Database error in vBulletin :

    Link-ID == false, connect failed
    mysql error: Access denied for user: '[email protected]' (Using password: NO)

    mysql error number: 1045

    I am getting them ocassionally, maybe once a day or every 3 days. Entirely random... What's the scoop? I've searched for info on this error: checked out my config.php and everything seems OK...

    This error means that either:

    1) The db info in your config.php file is wrong (in which case your forums won't work at all.)

    2) That user doesn't have permission to access the database listed in config.php.

    3) The database doesn't exist.

    4) MySQL isn't accepting new connections. (The server could either be down or has reached it's maximum connections limit.)

    If you are sure your config.php info is correct, then you will need to contact your host about this.

    Note, many servers are being probed for the phpBB worm these days and the MySQL server is being overloaded. This could account for these errors.

      Steve, I am the host as well. I guess it must be the worm causing these random 1045s.
