v3 Arcade works fine, but can't get ibPro running.

Here is my problem.

I have been running V3 arcade without any problem and have decided to check out ibPro. I would like to use the converter, but I can't even get the basic arcade running.

I followed the instructions of a fresh install with no errors during the import under Manage Products. And no issues editing the templates. I have the Arcade listed successfully in the AdminCp.

But when I click on "Arcade Main Settings" in the Admin CP I get this error:


Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061) in \arcade\functions\dbclass.php on line 42

Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in \arcade\functions\dbclass.php on line 45
ERROR: Cannot find database vbulletin
Warning: mysql_query(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in \arcade\functions\dbclass.php on line 184

The mySQL error that is returned is:


mySQL query error: SELECT * FROM games_settings
mySQL error:
mySQL error code:
Date: Tuesday 20th of February 2007

I am running this on my own server so I have full administrator control. I have checked file level permissions and while just trying to get this to work I have given "All Users" modify permission on the Arcade folder and all sub folders.

I have edited the dbclass.php file and manually added my database info on lines 5 through 9 with the correct database name, user id, password, and host name.

I have also verified that he user defined on line 6 has full access to the database in mySQL 5.0.

I have searched and read through these forums looking for similar errors but nothing I have tried so far has fixed anything.

So if anyone has any ideas of what else I might try I would sure appreciate it.

did you import the product-xml file ? It creates the DB-tables :)

Yes I did import the product-ibproarcade.xml file and did not get any errors. I have even done it a second time. The instructions I have been following are the ones listed in Installation - vBulletin 3.5.x and 3.6.x - english.html.

I have looked at the database and it shows multiple games_"something" tables listed but I still get the same errors.

I have assigned the user I defined in the dbclass.php every schema privileges available for that database.

Hmmm, if you want let me take a look, just provide FTP + full AdminCP access via PM and I will check this...
