    Question Import Mambo to Wordpress

    Hi,

    I'm trying to use the Joomla/Mambo migrator plugin to import my posts from a mambo website to a wordpress website.

    I get an error
    Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) in /[server path]/[username]/htdocs/New/wp-content/plugins/joomla-to-wordpress-migrator/joomla2wp-mig.php on line 1926

    Cant get MySQL Connection.0 -


    According to the FAQ When you get this error it means the webhost isn't using localhost:

    I am getting the following error: Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/usr/local/mysql-5.0/data/mysql.sock'

    Please check which MySQL server name your webhoster provides - it may be different then "localhost".

    Would this servername be [username].powwebmysql.com ?

    Because that doesn't want to work either...

    That name is the correct format. Log in to OPS | MySQL, here - http://ops.powweb.com/controlpanel/MySQL/index.bml, to see if that's the correct hostname.
