Scratch this and chuck it into the up-too-late file. It was a typo when I created the MySQL user. D'oh. Wonderful. Now my mistake will be eternal, for posterity, on Google. ;)
To those that remember me, long time no see. Nice to be back. Or more accurately, nice to be paid what I enjoy doing, again.
I've installed vchkpw on a fresh RH 7.3 box and I've run into the error in the subject line. I'm using an RPM install of MySQL 4 (server, development, client etc etc). Here's an example of the error:
vmysql: sql error: MySQL server has gone away
I've reviewed the list and Google'd to no avail. A vpopmail DB and user/pass has been created. The info was manually inputted into the vmysql.h file. It compiled fine, yet I still get this error. I tried changing the MySQL socket from /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock to /tmp/mysql.sock to no avail. Any other suggestions?
