    ok, found a new host and i have installed vbulletin. Now how do I import my vbulletin.sql to the new server? I can't even get to the admin page without going back to the old host. I only have an IP address...the name hasn't changed.

    Is it still a MySQl down problem? "Link-ID == false, connect failed" is a new part of the error I haven't seen before.
    that error means mysql either

    1. went down
    2. or the mysql.sock file was wiped

    mysql shouldn't be going down like that.. i'd find a new host

    You do need to find a better host. Take a look at the one I use. It offers awesome support, and I have rarely had any problems. If you do have a problem, they will fix it as quick as they can.

    http://www.aletiahosting.com/hosting/

    Features
    Monthly: $9.95/mo
    Annually (prepay 12 months) $7.95/mo
    Server Disk Space 200 MB
    Monthly Data Transfer 10 GB
    Dedicated Static IP Address Yes

    These are just a few of the features, they have a lot of other options on their essential plan. They also have other plans if you need more space or bandwidth.

    I reccomend them. I run 3 web sites, including my message boards with aletia.

    Yeah, I just posted what they said. I guess the left hand doesn't know what the right is doing.

    But earlier you posted they set the cron to restart it every 10 minutes. Which is it?

    Regardless, the fact that MySQL is being restarted so frequently is an indication on a poorly configured server. It doesn't really matter if they do it on a regular basis or just when it goes down. The fact is it shouldn't be going down to begin with - certainly not as frequently as your server seems to be.

    As I said, if you want to stay with this host you're going to need a lot of luck!

    This is what I asked them:
    I have a concern about you restarting MySQL every 15 minutes. What is going to happen to my database if it's being written to when we restart MySQL? Am I going to deal with database corruption on a regular basis???


    This is what they said:
    After reviewing your support ticket I have come to the understanding that you are having some trouble with the script used to restart MYsql on your server.

    The script you are referring to will only restart MYsql if MYsql has stopped.

    If we set the cron for every 24 hour period, MYsql would possibly be down for large amounts of unnecessary periods of time.
    This is damning evidence indeed. The only reason MySQL would be down at all is if they don;t know how to configure the server in the first place. Do yourself a favor and find another host before you run into some serious problems.

    By the way, what do you think is going to happen to your database if it's being written to when they restart MySQL? Unless you want to deal with database corruption on a regular basis then I suggest you run - don't walk - to find a competent host!

    I hate to slam a host like this, but my first priority is to the vB customer. Good luck!

    We're not allowed to advertise here... Thats why I hardly bring up what I do...


    Tell your host, that they will need to recompile PHP completely to make the mail() function work, its a problem with Cpanel, that the maker knows, and thats his fix.....

    I doubt they will fix this, but you can ask......


    Beside, it wouldn't be right for me to slam another host, and then post my link up.....

    Yes I have cpanel! What would I ask my host to do to let emailing from my bulletin board system?

    I don't know how much bandwidth I have been using...not that much. We just launched the site on the 22nd of Dec. How much do you charge? What are your packages?

    PS:

    Thats complete BS that they have to restart MySQL, I run a hosting business, and never need to do that... We've never had MySQL crash on us, Bind yes, but we expect that...... But not MySQL....
