Could not connect to main MySQL

Ive been messing with installing webpost. Created a seperate db..fine, edited the required config...fine.

Now my site displays this error on index.php.

Naturally i check the Db,Db names and pw's in Cpanel.
Then i upload a backup copy of Config.php

Still no cigar

Therefore i upload an emergency html error page so that our members dont wonder wth is going on.

I contacted my host, and he suggested i post the issue on his forums..so here i am Wink

Any ideas? Surely if the config and db users are matching, there shouldnt be a 'non' connection. Obviously its not the host as Raven asked me to start a topic here.
EEK!!

Cheers
WIZ

I dont think you understand the error properly, i set up webpost on a seperate db.

But now my main Nuke db is failing to connect. As i said ive checked the db user and pass, and also against the config.php

Not sure if the problem is connected to webpost, but thats what i was working on at the time of droppage.

Well the connection is made in db.php which is in the db directory. You should see code something like this:

Code:
$db = new sql_db($dbhost, $dbuname, $dbpass, $dbname, false);

if(!$db->db_connect_id) {
   $mysql_err = mysql_error();



The error message you should be getting from Nuke if you are unable to connect should look something like this:

Quote:
There seems to be a problem with the MySQL server - Sorry for the inconvenience.

Please report this to the Administrator ASAP.


Which makes me wonder, given what you posted, whether you are even "in" Nuke. If you are, then you could test what values are being passed in by echoing out $dbhost, $dbname, $dbuname, and $dbpass right after the first code statement I quoted.

ill look into that now.

What did strike me as strange too, was this wasnt the normal 'i cant access the db' error msg

nope no cigar.

I thought originally that the webpost config.php had over-written my nuke config.php, that would be too obvious right?

thats why i re-loaded it.

I have also re-named all of the webpost files in the admin folder to try and eliminate conflicts
