Host deleted files... now phpBB can't connect to database

Post by modtang »

I had some problems with my host and they removed my account. We sorted everything out and they restored it but now my BB won't work. I've already deleted it once before trying to figure things out and I don't want to do that again.

The database still exists and the settings are still the same. I haven't changed a thing. Any help appreciated. Thanks!

EDIT: I just noticed this:

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Host '66.246.42.240' is blocked because of many connection errors. Unblock with 'mysqladmin flush-hosts' in /home/weezer/public_html/forum/db/mysql4.php on line 48

I'm not sure what that means! :roll:
