School Website - Very Strange Problem
Very strange problem hope someone can point me in the right direction.
School website hosted externally. Everything to do with the website works fine when browsed to from any computer external to the school network.
The problem occurs when anyone browses to the website via an internal school pc.
This error occurs:
Connection to the database failed. Please try again later.
PHP Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061) in d:\domains\wellingtonschool.org\wwwroot\functions. php on line 9
It only appears when accessing a php page, which just happens to be the most important pages! Browsing to any standard .htm pages no problem, page displays as normal. I cant login to the site to update the news sections as i get this error. Only started happening from tuesday this week.
I have tried this on IE 6, IE7 and IE8, and firefox same exact error on each.
Browsing to one of the php pages from an external pc works perfectly.
No local cached copy on the web filter - smoothie.
Bypassing web filter same problem.
Hosting company nothing wrong they say - company that developed website no help they see it working fine from their end, so something local to the school? our isp? dunno..
mods move this to another forum if its in the wrong one.
