    Im trying to set up a website which was created in a windows box and moved to this debian box. I keep getting the same error below everytime i check the webpage. Im pretty much stumped on what to do.


    IPB WARNING [2] mysql_connect(): Lost connection to MySQL server during query (Line: 132 of /ips_kernel/class_db_mysql.php)

    There appears to be an error with the database.

    Do you use the correct MySQL username and password in your scripts?

    Is this in the php.ini config file?

    No! I guess there's some kind of config file for your web application where you can set the MySQL user and password.

    Once you find the config file with the Username/Password you should attempt connecting to the mysql server manually (not through the web application) to verify the login credentials are correct:

    # mysql -u <username> -p <database_name>
    password: ********

    You would run that on the server itself.
