MySQL unavailible

Postby Erwan » 02. November 2005 00:38

Hi there!

Well all was working fine but now....

OK so I am running PHP-nuke on my sever using xampp. All was fine untill I ran the security script for xampp. What happens now when I try to access my website it comes up with

"There seems to be a problem with the MySQL server, sorry for the inconvenience.

We should be back shortly."

Yet mySQL start properly, and I can access phpmyadmin fine. I reloaded my databse from a backup and still the same thing. Is there anyway to "un"-secure it again temporarly to see if that was infact the problem?

I tried that as well, same thing.

If I wanted to just re-install xampp so that is start as a fresh install, can I just del the


folder? and then reinstall it? or does it change other system settings that need to be removed?

Make sure you export your databases first.

I had to add the root password in cds.php for it to work after running the security script.

Code: Select all
dsl@box:/opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp$ more cds.php

Maybe you need to add your new password to the nuke script?
