Full Version: MySQL Error After Transfer
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
After I transfered a forum to a new site and updated the /inc/config.php with the new database details, I got this MySQL error:


How can I fix it?
check the database privileges for the user at web host control panel (through database manager)
requires all privileges to be selected
How exactly would I do that?
log into web host control panel, click on databases, find the database used for forum, find the user for the database
select the user, click on privileges tab / link to modify them, select all & save

if it is confusing, what type of web host control panel you have and do you know its version
I realised what was going wrong. It wasn't that the permissions were wrong, it's that my host has a limit on how big my database can be and it was too big so they wouldn't let me access it.
