MySql Connection Problems
Posted on 2004-08-16
I have a vBulletin and I was over at vbulletin.com asking around before I came over there. Their only reply was "There's something wrong w/ your mysql server."
Well HELLO CAPTAIN OBVIOUS...
Anyway... Here's whats going on.
I have a server that has between 300-600 consistent connections to the message board. We house the server in house (15 feet from where i am now) and I have full root access to everything.
The only thing running on the server is our message board. Everytime the mysql server cannot connect it gives the user a webpage that says this basically "Database error, please contact tech support @ etc etc etc".
At that time, an email then gets sent to me:
Database error in vBulletin :
Link-ID == false, connect failed
mysql error number: 0
Date: Sunday 15th of August 2004 06:55:33 PM
IP Address: 22.214.171.124
Another note: There are currently 450 users on my site right now that seem to be browsing seemlessly. (They could be encountering errors, but i' not sure as I'm not receiving any errors on my screen.)
Our database connection string is correct and the site is working, but a lot of people are getting this failed connect error. We're running Redhat 7 with Mysql.
Any help or direction would be appreciated. I'm fairly new at this mysql stuff.
