  • vbulletin installation help

    I'm installing the vbulletin for the first time. I received this error after trying to confirm the dbase...

    Warning: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) in /a/users/mxlee/ on line 38

    Warning: Supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /a/users/mxlee/ on line 47

    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.

    Can somebody, anybody, please help?

    Well it looks like you are using UNIX, which I am no good on.

    But, I had a problem with my config file and had to change the server to be localhost to make it work.

    You may want to post your config.php with the MYSQL statements (minus you password of course).

    Someone might see the problem.
