Instead of my site I get:


Warning: mysql_connect(): Host 'localhost.localdomain' is blocked because of many connection errors. Unblock with 'mysqladmin flush-hosts' in /var/www/html/catalog/includes/functions/database.php on line 19

Unable to connect to database server!


HELP what is this and what do I need to do?!!!!

If your website is hosted on a shared server (not your own dedicated server) then you will have to report this to your web hosting company and get them to unblock it.


Action you can take yourself, which might help, is to locate the use_pconnect line close to the bottom of both of your configure.php files and if it says 'true' change it to 'false'.


define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false'); // use persistent connections?
