Question I have... How do I find an old Site on iPage (with some info) ? Many thanks for any comment. Another question... Help!.

Ok, I have only noticed this problem since installing the "extra customer fields" contribution. not sure if it is related or weather I installed it wrong but the problem is this.

1. On 2 seperate occassions, whilst accessing my main page the following message appears "unable to connect to database".

If I then try to log directly on to phpmyadmin, it says error #2003 Unable to connect to database server.

If I keep trying to log on, eventually it will let me and then I am again able to access my main page..

I am not sure what may be causing this instability. Can anyone please help me with this.......

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I bump into an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..

Hi angus,.

On your configure files, what have you for Database define?.

If it's not as below try setting it to localhost.

Define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost');.

Hi nic,.

Sorry for asking but can you please tell me which configuration file. I am still a newbie. I have checked catalog/admin/includes/configure.php and catalog/inculdes/configure.php but I cannot find "define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost');" anywhere there..

Thats the correct files.

Near the bottom you should see define('DB_SERVER', ' ');.

Instead of localhost you probably have an IP number then, try to change it to localhost..

Make sure you have a back up for quick re install in necessary though!..

Hi Nic, this is what I had below, possibly set it up wrong initially then, are the other settings correct?.

Define('DB_SERVER', 'mysql');.

Define('DB_SERVER_USERNAME', 'blah blah ');.

Define('DB_SERVER_PASSWORD', 'abra cadabra ');.

Define('DB_DATABASE', '_general');.

Define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false');.

Define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql');.

Also, how do I know if I have set up my cookies configuration/settings correctly ?/.
