Is the mysql server set to accept external connections? If not check out this link on how to do this.


If you have ssh access, you could try using that, and connecting interactively with the "mysql" command (command-line client). That may give you error messages that don't suck. Or you might get more ideas asking on the forum.

There's not enough information here to identify a bug we can fix, so it's just cluttering up the tracker. (I know the error message isn't very helpful, but it looks like it comes from PHP not Bonfire).
