That could be anything unless your willing to give us line 48 of your script that its stating the error is on, etc. Probably best to give a few lines before and after just in case.

My first guess would be, its not connecting to your db for some reason, maybe mysql isn't running, the username and password is wrong that its trying to connect with, or could just be a single syntax in your line that is preventing it from connecting.

here is the function:

function sql_db($sqlserver, $sqluser, $sqlpassword, $database, $persistency = true)
{
$this->persistency = $persistency;
$this->user = $sqluser;
$this->password = $sqlpassword;
$this->server = $sqlserver;
$this->dbname = $database;

**line48** $this->db_connect_id = ($this->persistency) ? mysql_pconnect($this->server, $this->user, $this->password) : mysql_connect($this->server, $this->user, $this->password);

if( $this->db_connect_id )
{
if( $database != "" )
{
$this->dbname = $database;
$dbselect = mysql_select_db($this->dbname);

if( !$dbselect )
{
mysql_close($this->db_c

Well looking at my line 48 in my mysql4.php file I have for my phpbb forum, I see no difference in what you have in yours. This would lead me to believe mysql is not even running perhaps? Have you checked that? Check with ps -aux or top

Also on a side note, has this ever worked before or is this a initial install of phpbb, etc? If its new install, did you make sure to include mysql support with php, etc?

I have seen this before, check your phpinfo() and make sure php is built with mysql support then check your php.ini file and make sure the your loading the mysql extensions. Should look something like this

extension_dir /usr/lib/php4
extension mysql.so

Hope this helps

i did a ps aux and got these entries

mysql 1188 0.0 1.4 28140 7460 ? S Mar12 0:00 /usr/sbin/mysqld
mysql 1189 0.0 1.4 28140 7460 ? S Mar12 0:05 /usr/sbin/mysqld
mysql 1190 0.0 1.4 28140 7460 ? S Mar12 0:00 /usr/sbin/mysqld
mysql 1191 0.0 1.4 28140 7460 ? S Mar12 0:00 /usr/sbin/mysqld

could it be a user and password issue?

Does your phpinfo() show any MySql information?

Did you post this in another forum already because I responded to that thread..
Anyway, your problem is that perl5 DOES NOT include MySQL support, nor is it bundled with the MySQL PHP library. You'll need to download the MySQL library and then recompile php using the configure option:
Code:
./configure --with-mysql
