MySQL 5 possible problems.

Recommended Posts

I run a site that was recently upgraded to MySQL 5 (last week). Now this very simple script won't run:

[code]<?php

echo '<p>before connection</p>';


$please_connect = 1;

if ($please_connect == 1){

  mysql_connect ("localhost", "username", "pass") or die(mysql_error());
  mysql_select_db ("dbname");

} else {

  echo '<p>you did not ask to connect.</p>';
  
}

echo '<p>after connection</p>';

?>[/code]

If $please_connect is set, then there is no output, and no error. If not, then everything prints properly.

I notice that there is a new setting in 5 regarding strict mode. Would this be the culprit?

It's very strange, because the site has partial availability-- some pages and the stylesheet seem to be unavaialble, but other things are still there.

I'm very perlplexed.:(

Try resetting your password using:
[code]SET PASSWORD FOR youruser@localhost = OLD_PASSWORD('yourpw')[/code]
See this for more information:

The old pasword issue is from 4.0 to 4.1+ -- but that usually results in a "client doesn't support authentication" error. So if there's no error, there's something else going on here.

Some people upgrade from 4.0 to 5.0, but you're right, it should be spitting out an error.

Something must be crashing the thread because it should be printing the "after connection" part no matter what.

That's the not-so-funny part. It doesn't even print the stuff before the connection.

And that old password stuff, this is on a shared host that uses cPanel, so setting the password isn't a problem.

Thanks for your help.

Let's try this and see what happens. Put "error_reporting(E_ALL);" at the top of your script, and remove the "or die()" from the mysql_connect() call.
