I closed the forums using that option in the online edit config file so I could optimize the database but as soon as I did that, even though I was logged in as an administrator, I got the following errors:

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) in /data/14/0/115/101/767916/user/785684/htdocs/forum/ on line 35

I’ve looked at the “doeditconfig.php” file and the “editconfig.php” file thinking I could simply change the board from “closed” to “open” and then upload the file which would rectify the situation. But I can’t find where to do that. Perhaps neither one is the correct file? So, as it stands now, my Board is dead…… !!

to open and close your board, you do it thru the admin panel.

now since you can't go to admin panel, just edit your



change to


save/upload smile
