  • Database error in vBulletin

    Still running vb2.2.2 and will be upgrading shortly...

    In the meantime and just during the past week or so, I've started to get this error emailed to me every few days or so...

    Database error in vBulletin :

    Link-ID == false, connect failed
    mysql error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (111)

    mysql error number: 2002

    Date: Wednesday 17th of July 2002 04:10:33 PM
    Script: /forum/forumdisplay.php?forumid=10&daysprune=2
    Referer:


    Can somebody please explain what's up with this... Haven't done nothing to mySQL and am running php 4.1.2 still...

    it means mysql on your server went down or crashed, you need for your web host to restart mysql.. who's your web host btw ?

      >>>who's your web host btw <<<

      I am.... I have my own server... ...

      Interesting???... I've restarted mySQL several times over the past few weeks cuz of projects we are working on which involve database's, but it's weird that the error only comes accross once every few days and only for the vB 2.2.2 that I have over here.... Talkstox.com

      I'm running 1 other vB (2.2.6) RadScripts.com and I don't get the errors emulating from it... Haven't upgraded the one above yet cuz I haven't had a chance yet but will do so over the next few days...

      Maybe the upgrade will fix the glitch...

        The error will only appear if mysql is down at the time a page is going to be accessed, so if a forum is quiet and no one tries to access the page while mysql is down then there will be no error, but if the other board is busy then you will get the error messages.

            Its probably you restarting mysql thats causing the problems, during the couple of seconds that mysql is down for anyone trying to access a vBulletin page will cause an error messge to be send out.
