Does anyone currently use aplus to host? I am having this error appear when attempting to call my home page

 

Unable to connect to database server!

Some hosts use this format for db_database:

 

define('DB_DATABASE', 'yourdomain_com_-_databasename');

Thanks for a quick reply, I tested a fresh install of os commerce 2.2 ms2 and copied the configuration files and then copied them into my heavily modded site, but this didnt seem to work, any other files i would need to copy over the working fresh install of the oscommerce files

 

 

Any information here is very very much appreciated

 

Cheers

 

Jon
