database connection

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody

I'm migrating this website from a dedciated server with Plesk and localhost mysql database to a shared hosting with a different host (not localhost) mysql database and I get this error:

 

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/content/13/12345/html/xxx/includes/functions/database.php on line 17

Unable to connect to database server!

 

In the databse.php line 17 I have:

if (USE_PCONNECT == 'true') {

$$link = mysql_connect($server, $username, $password);

} else {

$$link = mysql_connect($server, $username, $password);

}

 

if ($$link) mysql_select_db($database);

 

return $$link;

 

Can anybody help??

You need to check the following places for database connection:

admin /includes / configure.php

catalog / includes / configure.php

I have this  problem after a new client of mine changed their host. I have checked the two paths mentioned by webpark and they have the same info. The login doesnt even seem to accept the new user I added onto the database. Now when I try to log in, it just pops up again implying the password is wrong where before it would go through and tell me it could not connect to the database. VERY confusing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

When the host is changed, the login for the database is usually changed as well as the path to the .htpasswd file. Try renaming the .htaccess in the admin directory to something else to see if you can get past that. If you can, then you have to change the path in it, or just create a new one.

Hey Jack,
Thanks for your response. I checked the .htaccess and the path is correct. I even went so far as to renter recreate the user/password to same info to make sure. But since I am NOT being asked for the password again it is obviously correct. The issue is just the database connection. I am not sure I want to mess with the .htaccess file during this time of day since the site is live but if you still think I should check into it, I will later on tonight. Just FYI. I included some info below. I saw that the GoDaddy made a backup of the file before they attempted a fix while speaking with my client and I see in the original admin/includes/configure.php that DB_SERVER is blank and the database is 'catalog'. Weird. 

 

Thanks in advance!

 

--------------------------------------------------------

FROM SITE BEFORE HOST CHANGE: public_html/admin/includes/configure-ORIGINAL.php:

--------------------------------------------------------

  define('DB_SERVER', '');
  define('DB_SERVER_USERNAME', 'mysql');
  define('DB_SERVER_PASSWORD', '');
  define('DB_DATABASE', 'catalog');
  define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false');
  define('STORE_SESSIONS', '');

 

 

Here is the content of the files CURRENTLY USED. I removed the username, password which I assure you are the same in each file.

If you are using GoDaddy your dbservername is wrong.

 

define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost'

 

The GD help says

 

Locating Your Database Connection Strings

 

Database-driven applications, such as WordPress, use connection strings to connect to your hosting account's database.

To Locate Your Database Connection Strings

  1. Log in to your Account Manager.
  2. Click Web Hosting.

Click one of the following, based on the type of hosting you have. You can tell this by the second word in your hosting's description beneath your hosting account's domain name, e.g. Deluxe Web correlates to Web/Classic (Hosting Control Panel).

 

  1. Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Launch.
  2. In the Databases section of the Hosting Control Panel, click the MySQL or SQL Server icon.
  3. From your list of databases, click Actions next to the database you want to use, and then click Details.
  4. Click Code Sample.

Hey Geoffrey,

Thanks for your reply. However, I did take a look at what you had mentioned but along that path it does say to enter 'localhost' since the server is on Linux (cPanel). So for our connection, localhost is correct. Again, thanks for your insight and if you can find another hole please let me know.

 

The only thing I can think of at this point is that there might be some kind of permissions error somewhere or the PATH to the db is wrong, such as in the DOCUMENT_ROOT. I believe the 'settings' are all correct. I've eliminated the user and pw as a problem so it is clearly just the db communication somewhere long the path after login.

 

Thanks again,

:) A

@@amirand926 I guess I'm lost at this point. You said the failure was a popup, which implies a .htaccess file is being used but then you said it's "issue is just the database connection" which is a different issue. As for temporarily removing the .htaccess file (assuming you mean the one in admin), that is fine to do for a quick test since the most it should be disabled is a minute or two. I suggest you try to pinpoint where the problem is at. Not being clear about it just makes everyone guess at possible solutions.

Hey Jack,

Sorry if I was unclear. The problem is that when I try to access the /admin/, I do get the login pop up and enter the correct username and password stored in both of the configure.php files correctly. However, I just get "Unable to connect to database server!". That's really all there is to it right now.

 

(The previous mixup was happening because I had messsed up the password in the files so the 'popup to login' kept appearing for me to re enter the pw. This did however help me understand that it IS seeing my correct passwords and IS logging in now but is not connecting to the database at some point thereafter)

 

I was looking around and found somewhere where someone said to hardcode "define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost');" in the /admin/includes/application_top.php and also to check the Register Globals bit (no idea where that is). Keep in mind that there are TWO application_top.php's just like configure.php's. this might matter only because they might have been/be using a version of OSC old enough for it to matter 

 

 

Thanks again guys. Sorry for the confusion.

Are you sure the login is the same as what's in the configure files? It shouldn't be, in my opinion, and rarely is, in my experience. Again, remove that file should help isolate that problem.

 

I don't suggest changing the application_top file. There is no need to do that and is bad advice, again, in my opinion.

Hey Jack,

I temporarily renamed the file .htaccess file and it had no effect. I have not changed the application_top file either bc I think that is a bad idea as well.

So with the .htaccess file disabled, do you see the connection message right away or are you seeing the login page with a box for the username and password?

I should also note that there are a bunch of other RENAMED .htaccess files in the /admin folder:

.htaccess.bk           (Last modified Nov 8 2014)

.htaccess.bk.CT_original_bak       Last modified Sept 8 2013)

.htaccess.CT_Original_bak      Last modified Oct 4 2013)

 

They seem to be backups created by others in the past. I included last modified dates.

 

 

In /catalog/ there is also a .htaccess.bak.

 

Seems the previous 'admin' was all about backups! wow. 

 

I was not involved with the transfer to new host goDaddy but I do know that it was on the date of Nov 7/8 which is the date of one of the backups.

 

The .htaccess.bk (date of host change) is:

 

#AuthUserFile /home/parlab/public_html/admin/.htpasswd
#AuthGroupFile /dev/null
#AuthName "Protected Area"
#AuthType Basic

#<Limit GET POST>
#require valid-user
#</Limit>
# Enable PHP 5.4 support for .php files on this domain only
AddType application/x-httpd-php54 .php

 

 

The CURRENT .htaccess is :

 

AuthUserFile /home/parlab/public_html/admin/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName "Protected Area"
AuthType Basic

<Limit GET POST>
require valid-user
</Limit>

 

 

 

 

What sucks about all this the most is that this whole site is going to be changed to Wordpress/Woocommerce in a few weeks and this is all just to make accessible by my client for changes until then. 

 

Thanks again for the help and I hope we are somewhat closer to narrowing it down.

It sounds like you are using a non-standard version of oscommerce. Please attach an image of the login box you are using.

 

None of the .htaccess files with changed names are not used so they can be ignored or deleted.

The link you provided is to a non-standard login option, at least for an oscommerce shop. That makes it difficult to get by since login methods vary with the code being used. Are you sure this is an oscommerce shop and not an offshoot like CRE or oscMax? If you can identify the code being used to provide the login, then I could tell you what change is needed. But as it is, there are too many versions to try to guess at. Maybe someone else will recognize it and be able to provide an answer.

That file is on the shop side. I thought the problem was in admin?

well, because the link we go to is ../admin/, where we are asked to log in, i checked the index.php in that directory which just loads/calls the ../catalog/default.php (post #20) that I listed previously. the first thing that the default.php does is require('includes/application_top.php'); which is also posted previously (post #9).

Yes, the application_top file is called first in all files in the root, shop and admin. The catalog.php file is not part of oscommerce so I think your shop has been changed too much to get it fixed in a support thread, unless someone has the time to walk you through it. I think the final solution will be to change the login for whatever method you are using. Figuring out that method is the hard part in a thread like this.

 

I should add, if the file you posted is in the admin, then there is a good chance that the wrong files are in the admin altogether so no matter what you do will work. You may want to make sure the correct files are in the admin. One way to tell is if there is a column_left.php file and not a column_right.php in the includes directory.

The only file that I have previously mentioned that is in the ../admin/ directory is the configure.php, which is correct. However, I did check

 

 ../admin/includes/ directory:

There is a column_left.php and NOT a comumn_right.php. I am not sure what that means exactly since I am unfamiliar with OSC structure, let alone the way the previous user set this up.

 

../catalog/includes/ directory:

there is both a column_left.php, column_left2.php and a column_right.php.

 

There is no catalog.php (that I have prevously mentioned), just a catalog directory. 

 

I did a serach for a catalog.php and there is one in /public_html/admin/includes/boxes/catalog.php.

 

Thanks a lot for your help and if you want to look elsewhere to solve this I will try. And you said that if they are setup incorrectly than no matter what I do will work... do you mean as far as defining the DB_SERVER in another location (e.g. application_top.php)?

I'm sorry but I don't have an answer for you.  Here are a few things to consider while trying to figure this out:

 

1 - The admin and the shop are completely separate as far as loading is concerned. You can delete the shop side completely and the admin will still load, once properly setup, although there would be a few errors on some pages but none that would stop it from loading. So stay out of the shop side looking at files. You're just causing yourself confusion, or so it seems to me.

 

2 - If the shop side is working, then the database login is correct for the shop side. That same login should be the same in the admin. This is the database login. Not the admin login. I think you are getting them confused.

 

3 - Once you figure out what kind of shop you are using, or what addon you are using for the admin login, you can edit the database to change the login, which is what the problem is, in my opinion, based on what you posted here. Without knowing that, there's no way to make this change, other than wild guesses, of course.
