almost done with a full site backup: all 4 mySQL databases and all other files on the server… i’m switching ISPs… already paid the fee..
well, the tech support person on chat didn’t solve the problem or shed any light other than saying “this could be a problem with mySQL”
i am on live chat with a support person now…

@mguhlin got time for some skype IM help?
@mguhlin if i want to upload my backup mysql, do i just rename that when i upload or do i have to do something to the file to rename?
on my test site that is working with the dashboard, the public website/root doesn’t load anything, but it doesn’t give the can’t connect
i’d rather be giving my full attention to episode 2 of ‘the war’ now that is on…
ah this is frustrating….
the root/public page won’t load at all tho
ok, i uploaded a fresh copy of wordpress to a subdirectory, using my same mysql database - all the dashboard/admin pages work great
@mguhlin thanks for the suggestions— i am trying to reconnect in a temp directory… at least i do have a full backup, that feels good…
then i get the connection error again - strange also i don’t see the usual WP error screen on the root domain/public page, just the dashbd
here’s the strange behavior— when i reset my password in mysql, I CAN get my WP dashboard to come up for a couple of clicks
@aschmitz i’m not familiar with mysql optimize/repair table commands - do you have a link?
@becksintex I like iSafe’s curriculum generally, tho i think the movie “predator” is over the top / not realistic and play up the fear…
@bhwilkoff no the databases are different… i did just get a backup with phpmyadmin
error is cannot connect to database… ugh. this is when i don’t like being my own tech support….
i reset my pw in mysql, reset pw in wp-config.php - WAS able to get the dashboard up for awhile, but then i get the same error…
i am buffaloed - speedofcreativity.org has been down all day, other WP blogs on the same domain are up - can’t resolve the problem…
