Re: [terryally] Connection problem on footer of page only

Hi Terry

I am wondering if the extra includes is bumping you into a connection limit or some sort. Like, you can only connect to the database with the same account a certain amount of times in quick succession.

I don't know for sure though so I'd like to run a couple tests. Could you email me FTP details to your server through ross@interactivetools.com? If you could link back to this forum post as well, that would be great!

Thanks!

Re: [terryally] Connection problem on footer of page only

Hi Terry

I just replied to your email but wanted to post here for anyone else following along.

Basically, the problem here is going to be that the MySQL username or password you are using in one of the two includes files before your footer code is incorrect.

This is where the error message comes from and because it's throwing an error, the footer code doesn't even get a chance to run.

If you remove all the CMS Builder footer code you have there, you'll see that the error messages are still there.

You'll need to double check the login details for your includes and then that should get things going.

Keep me up to date with how you are making out. Thanks!

Re: [ross] Connection problem on footer of page only

Hi Ross,

I got your note and I just responded in a fairly comprehensive way.

Basically, I removed the footer and the message vanished. I believe that the CMSB connection closed after I open a second connection. Perhaps there is a way to reopen it for the footer?

Re: [terryally] Connection problem on footer of page only

After much discussion and patient technical support from Ross the solution turns out to be something one needs to know before building the site.

Essentially I was using the multi-record section editor and that does not like other non-CMSB database connections on the same page so it throws a tantrum.

However the single record section editor doesn't mind another connection.

The bottom line is that CMSB does have its limitations in this respect and once you know that you can decide what type of section editor to use or whether CMSB is appropriate the job at hand.

The only solution in my case was to start from scratch and re-code the entire site - which I am not going to do!

If I am wrong, I am sure Ross will correct me.

Hi Terry.

I agree with you on this one. There is defintiely something thought you'll want to put into the structure of the data before you get started.

The main thing to keep in mind though is that we are here to help even at that stage. So it's better to think it out first, ask us as many questions as you need and then start setting up the database.

Keep me up to date with how you are making out. We are always here to help :).
