    -----------------------------------
    Database error in vBulletin: Link-ID == false, connect failed
    mysql error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (61)

    Who is your hosting provider? It's indicating that the MySQL database for you site is down.

      My host in candidhosting.com

      So this error means it is not the forum, it is the server, right?

        Chances are, the problem is with your hosting provider's MySQL database. I would contact your hosting provider and find out if they are or anyone else is experiencing problems.

          Basically, my host told me to take down UBB because it was crashing the server, so I went with VB, now he is telling me I need to take down VB because it is crashing the server, and only a super computer can handle my site with VB? What should I do? Now, he is recommending UB2K!?

            Susan,

            How large is your site? In particular how many users are generally on at one time and what is the largest number you've had? It may be that your site is too large to weork on a shared server.

              Tell him that MySQL isn't configured properly on their servers.

                ask you host what kind of server you're hosted on?

                single pentium 3 or dual pentium 3 ?
                what speed?
                memory?
                hard drive type eide or scsi?
                apache version?
                php version?
                mysql version?
                mysql configuration in their /etc/my.cnf file or via

                this command in telnet as root user

                mysqladmin -u root -p variables

                also extended-status output

                mysqladmin -u root -p extended-status

                copy and past output here

                how many sites are sharing this server?

                also Susanweb1, what is your vB stats?

                pageviews/day
                visitors/day
                average and peak concurrent users?
                other scripts installed? i.e. banner script, etc?

                even point your web host to this thread if you need to

                And please be kind enough to enter your vB license info as required here http://vbulletin.com/forum/showthrea...threadid=22736

                  I am on a dedicated server, not shared..and the bandwidth is about 800GB a month.

                  BUT, the forum only maxed at about 350 concurrent users....

                  My server is a unix server on FreeBSD Apache
                  1 GB Ram
                  866 Pentium
                  Scsi harddrive
                  *not sure about the versions of PHP and mysql, but I think they are the latest.*

                            hmmm if you're leasing/renting a dedicated, you web host has no say in what forum script you run, only advice for you on what to run.

                            i remember you talking about this site of your with 800GB and with 350 concurrents just for the forum and if i take a wild stab at a guestimate of traffic

                            800gb / 80kb per page would equal = approx. 10.5 million pageviews/month?

                            would that equate to 1 - 2 million uniques per month?

                            Okay.
                            1. i believe FreeBSD does have a mysql problem not sure?
                            2. you're current set up isn't handling the load well maybe upgrading to dual p3 1ghz with 2 - 3 gb ram?
                            3. mysql needs fine tuning or moving to a 2nd dedicated server acting as a dedicated mysql server or at least moving to a 2nd separate scsi disk on your current server?

                            if you can't post a link to your site or provide certain info on this forum, pm me instead
