Re: Cannot select DB error!
It was the changes to bb-settings.php that did it, the 757 patch: https://trac.bbpress.org/ticket/757
Thanks for all the help chrishajer and livibetter. I could still be staring at my password wondering why it won’t work.
So now I have reinstalled again (to get rid of any bad changes I made while trying to figure this out) and we are good to go.
And yes, this was a “all of the sudden” problem, don’t know how, don’t know why. I have some other similar sites running the same code/settings and they still work fine without the patch even though they too have the host: ‘localhost:/tmp/mysql5.sock’
Also, yes, I am on 0.8.3 and was before the issue – if you were still curious.
