    Usually in the error (the one you posted in the first post) there is a line that says "IP Address: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx".

    I've never had an error like that when my site was still running. I'm not really sure what you should do about it. It looks like someone is trying to connect to your database (unsuccessfully, thank goodness). I'd grab their IP and then ban them from the server level.

    Question is, if boscgi0202.eigbox.net is the hostname of your webslave/webserver?

    If I had an error in the file, wouldn't that effect everyone and not only this "boscgi0202.eigbox.net"?

    Host 'boscgi0202.eigbox.net' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server

    It looks like the config.php file has incorrect information. Make sure you have the correct information in your config.php file for the name of the mysql host. See this page in the manual - Editing the vBulletin Configuration File
