MyBB has experienced an internal SQL error and cannot continue.
SQL Error:2005 - Unknown MySQL server host '' (0)Query:[READ] Unable to connect to MySQL server
Please contact the MyBB Group for technical support.
looks like database hostname is not correct. check for the correct database details in ~/inc/config.php file
$config['database']['hostname'] = '___________';
$config['database']['username'] = '___________';
$config['database']['password'] = '___________';
Most of the time host is named as localhost inside server and rest according to db. Configure properly and it will be fine.
