  • WHAT could be wrong ?????

    Hi all.

    I don’t know what to do, we installed the new RC2 of VB onto our site.

    We did a clean install, then we tried to restore the SQL backup that we had into the new database that we just made.

    Did follow the info below

    1st - Backup current database:

    mysqldump --opt -uUSERNAME -p databasename > /path/to/dump.sql

    did all that, and I could see the sql file in the root of the FTP. 40 odd meg.

    2nd - Restore to new server
    • mysql –u<myusername> -p <mypass> < /dump.sql
    3rd - Bringing it back online
    • Go into your config.php and change the database name to the database name you created in Step 3, if necessary.
    >> I went there, there is no change, and it’s all the same info. There is nothing to change.

    And all I get is this.

    There seems to have been a slight problem with the database.

    We apologise for any inconvenience.

    Nothing is wrong, all that is happened is that you have lost the connection to mysql.

      Also is the db backup from RC2? If not, you will need to run the upgrade process.
