I'm having an issue on the website. I've been having insures connection with and when I redid the dynamic connection I started having more problems. I'm getting the following error on the actual website:


Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/content/15/5831415/html/Connections/connLetsFish.php on line 25

Fatal error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/content/15/5831415/html/Connections/connLetsFish.php on line 25

I've uploaded the a text file with the code of the connection file. please help.

The error means that the server address you used for the hostname is not working.

The server is not allowing the connection through that host name.

In the connection, the remote server address you used is:
wwww.lets-fishpettoys.com

Trying to visit that address does not work, it gives a server not found error. Since the server cant be found, it is probably trying to use the local host setting for connecting to the database


Double check the server name you are using.

I'm not sure what to do. I've followed the instructions the first time and I took out the part of the website address and not sure what to do from here. I need some help.

I did double check the server address when I did it before I posted on Saturday. I knew enough to check that.

but the server address you have entered:
wwww.lets-fishpettoys.com

is not correct.

I cannot visit that server address. If i try to visit that server address it gives me an error that the server cannot be found.

I am not able to make a dynamic connection

Today I tried to make a dynamic connection after a fresh installation of Databridge. but it gives me some errors as in the screen shot. the 3 errors are name as wa1. wa2.wa3 in the screenshots.

I am really grateful for the 'reactivating' option if I face these type errors.

Thank you and please advise me.

Reset the workspace layout, go to Window -> Work Space layout -> Reset '<your layout name>'

and Delete the Dreamweaver Cache file from the users configuration folder:
