  • VB causing server to crash?

    I'm on a shared hosting account and it seems that vbulletin keeps causing the webhosts server to crash.

    I checked all the databases and none of them are corrupt. I get a whole bunch of emails which have the following:

    Database error in vBulletin :
    Link-ID == false, connect failed
    mysql error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)
    mysql error number: 2002
    Date: Friday 13th of December 2002 03:51:48 PM
    Script: /forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=4873

    Any ideas on where to start looking for the problem?

    As you stated, this error means either MySQL crashed, it's not running or it can't find the socket. You need to contact your host about this. Here is more info on this error:

      I have contacted them. The only thing they said was that I was running heavy scripts which was causing their server to crash. They have now suspended my account for the 2ND time because of this. Is it an issue on their part or is it something to do with VB???

        I'nm not aware of any other reports of vBs crashing servers. Perhaps your forums are too busy for this server.
