Database changed, integration+forum failed

    So Godaddy(my host) updated/migrated all of their databases recently and now my forum at http://www.redvets.com/forum gives me this error:

    Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘p50mysql77.secureserver.net’ (4) in /home/content/m/i/k/mikeumus/html/redvets.com/forum/bb-includes/backpress/class.bpdb.php on line 123

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_die() in /home/content/m/i/k/mikeumus/html/redvets.com/forum/bb-includes/backpress/class.bpdb.php on line 614

    and the same error when I try to access the back end at: http://www.redvets.com/forum/bb-admin

    Now http://www.redvets.com/forum/bb-login will successfully open the login page, fully rendered with no errors, but I believe that is because this page has nothing to do with integration or the databases.

    Is there a way I may be able to tell the database directly through PHPmyAdmin that the database name has changed?

    Also, why does it feel like all developement for bbPress has died? Is this just my comparing it to Worpress or am I just not snooping around this bbPress.org enough?

  • That should be in your bb-config file, I thought.

    You’re not snoooping around enough. bbPress development is still occuring, just on a much smaller scale than WordPress. In the past couple months we’ve had a couple alpha version of 1.0, a 1.0 release, 1.0.1 release, 1.0.2 release, 0.9.0.6 release and a new theme at bbpress.org.

    You can always watch for activity here:

    http://trac.bbpress.org/

    Or subscribe to the bbDev mailing list if you really want the nuts and bolts:

    http://lists.bbpress.org/mailman/listinfo/bbdev

    What versions of bbPress and WordPress did you integrate?

    bbPress 1.0 and WordPress 2.8.2

    It’s not the database in the bb-config.php file that changed. It was the Worpress 2.8.2 database that got migrated.

    http://trac.bbpress.org/ is pretty neat. Thanks for that.

    Am I just screwed.

    Is there a way I can manipulate the values in the tables of the database to point it to the new name? I can’t think of any other way for me to get in there and change the name.
