In your /includes/config.php, check your database username/password settings, either the username is wrong, or password.

If in doubt contact your host, as we cannot tell you what they are.

I'm curious as to how installing a hack would change your config file. What hack was it ?

The user/password you are using does not have the correct mysql permissions - if you cannot control this then you need to speak to your host.

Do you know how to create mysql users, databases, and grant database permissions to those users ?

Being the owner means nothing if you haven't actually granted the user you are using the correct permissions.

they seem to have, it's tellin me i have all the proper permissions, and i was jsut letting you know, i am the owner. To install a VB do i need to edit the db_mysql.php file?

p.s. i also have msn if it would make this easier, please man..ANYTHING im desperate at this point

actually, i have recieved another error now...trying to fix this...Step 2) Connect to the database

Attempting to attach to database

Warning: mysql_errno(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /var/www/html/forums/includes/db_mysql.php on line 141

The database has failed to connect because you do not have permission to connect to the server. Please confirm the values entered in the 'includes/config.php' file.


i think i narrowed it down to

i think i narrowed it down to

$this->error = mysql_error($this->link_id);

that is line 141, someone explain to me what that means, and what i must do to fix it

You are missing the point - it has nothing to do with the vb code, the error is permissions.

"The database has failed to connect because you do not have permission to connect to the server"

Until you fix this you will get nowhere. (and sorry no, I don't have MSN access).

Either the database information in your config.php is not correct, or the MySQL user don't have sufficient permissions to the database.
