MySQL error

Post by TheHackMan »

Recently I had moved from my Windows server to a Linux server on my host and had to transfer everything over to the new Linux server. Well I got all the files up and everything and added all the database tables, edited the config.php file to the new username settings(pasword, username, etc.) but I still get this error when trying to access my forum:
Warning: mysql_error(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/lordres/public_html/forum/db/mysql4.php on line 330

Warning: mysql_errno(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/lordres/public_html/forum/db/mysql4.php on line 331
phpBB : Critical Error

Could not connect to the database

Edit: Well I don't know what I did exactly or why it worked but I made a second username for the database with a different password and after putting those two into the config file, saving it, and uploading it everything worked.
