MySQL Connection problems in previously-working installation
edited January 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
All of a sudden I started receiving a fatal, un-recoverable error regarding the connection to the mysql server: "The error occurred on or near: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)" There are a number of issues here: 1) The conf file (included below) does not ask vanilla to connect via a local socket, but to a remote server and always has 2) I can connect to said remote server manually from the vanilla machine using the vanilla credentials 3) My other php/mysql sites (non-vanilla) on this machine are working fine I'm not sure what to try next? I would really appreciate a hand. ==BEGIN ./conf/database.php== // Database Configuration Settings $Configuration['DATABASE_HOST'] = 'sqlserver'; $Configuration['DATABASE_NAME'] = 'iago_vanilla'; $Configuration['DATABASE_USER'] = 'vanilla'; $Configuration['DATABASE_PASSWORD'] = 'xxxxx'; $Configuration['DATABASE_CHARACTER_ENCODING'] = 'utf8'; $DatabaseTables['User'] = 'LUM_User'; ... ... ==END ./conf/database.php==
