Sorry vger, i just tryed it and it didn't work.


Does anyone else know how to fix this? btw i'm on a yahoo host.


I suggest you host elsewhere. I have seen a lot of reports of problems with yahoo gettting setup and then once the site is setup having problems with mysql connections.


They seem to be OK for static html sites but php and mysql sites seem to have nothing but problems and there are too many hosting companies out there to fight with getting and keeping your site up and going.

The Knowledge Base is a wonderful thing.

Do you have a problem? Have you checked out Common Problems?

There are many very useful osC Contributions

Are you having trouble with a installed contribution? Have you checked out the support thread found Here

BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP!!! You did backup, right??
