Getting a new error.
Hosting service says outdated forum software might not be supported anymore. this crap is killing me.
error says:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

[MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver]Access denied for user 'xxxxxx'@'188.xxxxxxx' (using password: YES)

/forum/inc_header.asp, line 111

Line 111 says: my_Conn.open strConnString

another information when switching to other asp.net version:
The database could not be opened !!
Check your config.asp file and set the
strConnString so it points to the database.
Also check if strDBType is set to the right databasetype.

i have a bad feeling. the forum files, config.asp had pointed to a database that is no longer there, when the provider switched me to plesk. i have now a different ip for the database. is it possible that the forum still loaded posts to the old dtbase host adress and that the provider now deleted this and is no longer working, and if i oint to the new server ip that many posts are gone? and in which files would i have to switch all the ip database info? heeeeelp

The first error you posted means your username / password are not allowed to connect to the database

is the forum not compatible with ODBC 5.5.51 Driver???

the provider switched me to plesk. so when they say they moved me over, i guess that means they copied data from the database from the old hosting to the new one, basically giving my data a new server address but never telling me that i would have to change the config.asp file or other things. which i think means that all the posts made to the forum were stored to the old hosting, and now it seems the old database address was deleted basically deleting all posts made in the last months? could this be possible what i'm thinking here?

Try opening setup.asp in your browser that should force it to load it's config. What errors are you getting? We can't help if you don't provide enough information.

when i open setup.asp i get this:


The database could not be opened !!
Check your config.asp file and set the
strConnString so it points to the database.
Also check if strDBType is set to the right databasetype.



Code : 80004005

Error Description :
[MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver]Unknown MySQL server host 'xxxxxxxxx.db.8993258.hostedresource.com' (0)

yup, i'm screwed. so after i got the error with setup.asp i went back to config.asp changed the database location, then went back through the browser to setup.asp and the forum came back with the correct look and setup,...and the last posts made in july...means that the forum stored all posts after july in the old database location which most likely the provider deleted today. and because i was never told to change the files to post to the new database location i'm up sh*ts creek...so i think.... any comment on what i think happened?

[quote]Have you tried asking your host?[/quote=Originally posted by HuwR]I have been on the phone with them for 7 hours.Telling me all kind of nonsense about how it's content and they are not responsible, up to we deleted something. I'm at the mercy of a specialist if they recover what i think was deleted. I would like to get input of what i described from an expert if that is possible. If config asp indeed saved to an old database because the new one was not pointed to. The host service send 3 email when they switched, no warning to change anything in my files, just everything went well, you don't have to do anything. Nothing to worry about.

yes, if they moved your database to a different server then your forum will still have been writing to the old one if you did not update the config.asp

[quote]yes, if they moved your database to a different server then your forum will still have been writing to the old one if you did not update the config.asp[/quote=Originally posted by HuwR]so i was correct on my thought. so now that was probably also the problem for the site acting up, while they told me it's old not compatible programming. wondering now if they can recover 3 months of data. would it be enough to just copy the database the forum wrote to and replace the one that is on the new server, or do i need to have other files copied and replaced?

You can just replace the database with the old one, you will probably need to ask the host to do that.
