    I get this error on the 3rd step of the install......

    vBulletin Install Script

    (Note: Please be patient as some parts of this may take quite some time.)

    Attempting to attach to database...


    Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) in /web/sites/99/fxpreq/www.fxpreq.f2s.com/vbb/admin/db_mysql.php on line 37

    Warning: Supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /web/sites/99/fxpreq/www.fxpreq.f2s.com/vbb/admin/db_mysql.php on line 46

    The database has failed to connect because you do not have permission to connect to the server. Please go back to the last step and ensure that you have entered all your login details correctly.

    Click to go to the vBulletin website
    I am using f2s.com to host.
    Please help.
    Thanks

    Try changing your database server address from "localhost" to "127.0.0.1"

      the problem is that f2s.com now is not working! on some boards f2s works now but many boards now since yesterday aren't working because the server of f2s is down!

      i've send f2s a mail for the problem!
