  • db_mysql.php problem

    This is my first time using php so its bound to be fun installing this boars. Ive got the 2.0 Beta 5 version and im trying to install it at freedon to surf (f2s)

    Ive got all the files up but i am stuck on step 3 of the installation heres the error im getting:

    Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) in /web/sites/128/otoalliance/ on line 37

    Warning: Supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /web/sites/128/otoalliance/ 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.

    Any help would be appreciated

    1) Use RC3

    2) Make sure your login details are entered correctly.

    3) There's a thread in the vBulletin Lite forum where Kier details how to install a board on F2S, and while it will be slightly different using the full product instead of vB Lite, the ideas will be the same.
