  • Database connection Error

    Hello,

    Since 2-3 days i am facing a problem with the database.
    Following this link http://www.dardania.de/vb/upload no connection can be established.


    On the other hand if i click on this link
    http://www.dardania.de/vb/upload/search.php?do=getnew I can access my forum easily.

    What could be the problem ?

    First I recommend reuploading all the default vBulletin non-image files in ASCII mode, overwriting your current files. Also, turn off plugins globally in your vBulletin Options. Does this problem still occur then?

          Add a new Style and select 'No Parent Style'. This will force it to use the default templates. Switch to this Style and see if the error still occurs.

          If so, see if any of theses suggestions fixes it: http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/blank_pages

            I have been through all the 9 points of the vbulletin help docs and no one helped.
            I have changed the style and this error still occurs.

              If you have followed all those instructions then this is a server issue. I suggest contacting your host.

                  Be sure that your Mysql user has the LOCK rights.
                  (can be done easily via Cpanel Mysql section or your admin panel)

                    i have checked it, nothing to do with lock rights.

                    can somebody else help me with this issue ?

                    sending ticket to the vbulleting team at this stage ok ?

                      Please reread post #7. Starting a ticket with your host is the next step since this is a problem on the server end.

                        I just would like to inform everybody that this is a locking issue !

                        This is the solution of the problem !

                          I really don't see how that could have been a mail issue. How did your host explain that?

                            In this case my was not cooperative at all. After trying days getting my forum back online i found out by luck that if mailque systen enabled with locking I cannot connect to the db and a blank page appears.

                            Is this a server issue or a vbulletin bug ?

                              There is no such vB bug like that. This is a server issue.
