  • Urgent: Database error in vBulletin :

    I need your help! I get flooded with error messages via mail:

    -------
    Database error in vBulletin :

    Link-ID == false, connect failed
    mysql error:

    mysql error number: 0

    --------

    I got over a hundred mails. Is this something I can solve or is it a host-problem (like unstable MySQL connection or something)? We did'nt have any errors during our tests though.

    Thanks!

    This error means that either:

    1) The db info in your config.php file is wrong (in which case your forums won't work at all.)

    2) That user doesn't have permission to access the database listed in config.php.

    3) The database doesn't exist.

    4) MySQL isn't accepting new connections. (The server could either be down or has reached it's maximum connections limit.)

    If you are sure your config.php info is correct, then you will need to contact your host about this.

    Note, many servers are being probed for the phpBB worm these days and the MySQL server is being overloaded. This could account for these errors.

      Thanks for your fast reply.

      As the forums is up and running, my conf.php seems to be correct.

      >>2) That user doesn't have permission to access the database listed in config.php.
      The IP adresses are all different. That means what?

      If the database wouldn't exist, the forum would not work either, right?

      What can I do with the error mails? Can I switch them off temporarily? I get about 10 mails in 5 minutes!

        You can change the email address in config.php.
