  • DB error

    Hi there, I have been getting this database error quite a lot over the last few days. Version 3.7.3. Is there something I can do about it? I appreciate any help.

    mysql_connect() [<a href='function.mysql-connect'>function.mysql-connect</a>]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) /home/.../public_html/forums/includes/class_core.php on line 311

    It's a server issue and you should talk to your host about it. See this page for the causes of this error:

      Thanks, Lynne. We did restart the server and will see if that does the trick. Thanks for the link. Much appreciated!
