  • Database went to sh1ts!

    It was working fine a couple minutes ago..
    Then afterwards I checked my email and I get several email messages with:

    Database error in vBulletin :

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

    mysql error number: 0

    Now I don't know what to do? My forums are gone! WTF happened?! Help please.

    EDIT: Hmm.. I think I figured it out. I had changed the password to my site's control center and that's when it started happening. I'm assuming I need to charge the password in the config file as well to the new password right? I'll give this theory a test.

        Thanks for the support!
        That was indeed the problem. I needed to change the db login information on the config.php file to match the new one.
