  • What does this error messege mean?

    Database error in vBulletin :

    Link-ID == false, connect failed
    mysql error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

    mysql error number: 2002


    I just got 3 email notifications of this and I don't know what to do to fix, I don't know what the problem is either. Any help? Thanks.

    That's something your host will have to fix.

    I recieve that error when trying to SSH to my site, and I'm awaiting my host's fix.

      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:
