Coppermine critical error
« on: May 20, 2006, 03:02:17 pm »

Is this problem caused by my host, and if so, what may have caused it? It just started happening, it was working fine prior to this message....

This problem occurs when you first execute the program:

ask your webhost.

I know that this is not your problem, but I have notifyed my host. I use dotEasy.com as my host and the only technical support is via email. I sent them an email over 24 hours ago and still no answer. This host has got to be the worst in customer support that I have ever had. I'm in the process of changing hosts, but I still have this problem.

Try to login to your account at your hosting company.

Go to your sql tables and check the adress and links if those are still correct and you can acces your database than perhaps the company is just playing with theire configs.

If I were you I would just have a bit more patience.

I assume you pay for this account and don't use the free account which doesn't support the free databases (anymore)

@softershade: your error message differs, so your issue differs. You shouldn't have replied to this thread, but started your own one. Don't try to hijack threads.

Problem Fixed: database host "localhost" was changed to "127.0.0.1" and that fixed the error message. Now, if I only understood why "localhost" worked for weeks on end and then stopped working...don't say call my host, they only have email support and none on the weekends. dotEAsy has got the worst support in the world! :-\
