cgi error

Recommended Posts

I have an ikonboard forum on my site - and recently got this error page when trying to log in - then after a day or so the forum was back up, but now it is down again with the same error message.


Ikonboard CGI Error


Ikonboard has exited with the following error:


Can\'t connect to mySQL database. Can\'t connect to local MySQL server through socket \'/tmp/mysql.sock\' (2)


This error was reported at: Sources/iDatabase/Driver/mySQL.pm line 55.


Please note that your \'real\' paths have been removed to protect your information.


I have no idea what this means at all.

Is it a problem with the mysql data base - or is it something I have done, or my web hosts?


Can someone please tell me what I should do or who I should contact to get this put right?


Thanks for your help
