Database connection failed

Postby Ajakss » Sat Dec 28, 2013 3:11 am


unfortunately, today my database was crashed. I see message but I do not know how to repair it. Any help would be very appreciate.

File: ...ojs/classes/core/ line 29
Function: PKPApplication->PKPApplication()

File: ...ojs/lib/pkp/includes/ line 58
Function: Application->Application()

File: ...ojs/index.php line 61
Function: ...ojs/lib/pkp/includes/")

Kind regards,

Hi Adam,

I think parts of that error message are missing -- but regardless, it sounds like your MySQL server needs attention. If you're not running your own server, I'd suggest asking your system administrator to check.
