Spontaneous Fatal Error after Board up a year

edited January 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Got this error today. Board has worked fine for months. How to fix? Please help. A fatal, non-recoverable error has occurred Technical information (for support personel): Error Message The connection to the database failed: Affected Elements MySQL.OpenConnection(); The error occurred on or near: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'endteach_PghRed'@'localhost' (using password: YES)


  • Have a word with your host. Maybe your database credentials changed or something.
  • Will do.
  • my thought is that they put a limit on the size of the database, and you just exceeded that limit. i guess the best thing to do would be to talk to your host, which you're apparently doing
