I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..
Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 61.
I was able to resolve this by using the term "localhost" rather than the loopback IP or server name in the mysql_connect() function. Took me a bit to stumble on it, I suspect if you are accessing mysql from php and both reside on the same server you must use localhost as the server name. I noted during testing that localhost made use of the mysql.sock interface rather than the TCP/IP socket. Anyway, using localhost solved it for me..
Try updating both your configure.php files..
Wheres the config file/s located?? thats what ive not been able to find..
The server deffinatly changed. it's not temp, nor is it a distance thing,.
So I basicly just need to know where to change the server url?.
Right found the two configoration files in includes/ and admin/includes,.
And changed the 'DB_SERVER', in both to localhost and that hasn't fixed it..
Try google again and see if there are any other solutions...
Does no one else have any suggestions or know a more presice way of fixxing this issue??.
I cant find anything specific on google...
