Database connection error (2): Could not connect to MySQL.
Without changing anything today my website was not working anymore. This was the message:
Database connection error (2): Could not connect to MySQL.

After changing the database user and password and editing it in the configuration.php it didn't work either. I had the same problem with a smaller mosets database in an other joomla installation in a subfolder as well but there the new database user/password worked.

When I now check the database I can click on every table only not on the table __mt_links
After clicking on it the database crashes.

I run Joomla 2.5.4 and Mosets 2.2. I have 1837 entries in the table. I really do not know how to solve the problem. I would appreciate if someone would know a solution to this.

3 things you could do or try....

1. In Mtree Admin click the link Recount Cats/Listings sometimes this seems to fix DB issues.

2. In PhpMyAdmin use the Repair Table function

3. If all this fails then log a Priority Support Q, Lee from Mosets doesn't seem to monitor these user forums as much anymore but I believe he is reasonably promp with priority support replies.

Hope this helps

Thank you for your reply.
I contacted my hoster and he did the repair table function and now it works again. Even though some files/data changed. For example is the website title different than before. It took the title of another website in a subfolder. Strange!
Nevertheless it works again, thank you.

When I got this is because mysql was off

I've restarted it, and it worked again
