Problems migrating to new server
« on: May 27, 2009, 12:58:46 pm »

I wanted to change to a new server so I can control who can link directly to the images.

I did what was detailed in the docs to migrate;
  • backed up the DB
  • restored it on new server with no errors
  • copied all files to new server
  • Added sql users and assigned to manage the database
  • edited the file to use the new details
  • Changed permissions on folders as requested

but I get the following error message...

Coppermine critical error:
Unable to connect to database !

MySQL said: Host '' is blocked because of many connection errors; unblock with 'mysqladmin flush-hosts'

I know the server name is correct because if I change it, it gives a different error.
I've changed the username & passwords to '1' in the config file and on the server and I still get this error  ???

Any help would be appreciated.

Do what the error message says. If you can't then ask your host to do so.
