Just Host Web Hosting Help

Local MySQL Connection Blocked To Server

Problem:

I get the following database connection error:
            Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Host 'host#.Justhost.com' is blocked
            because of many connection errors; unblock with 'mysqladmin flush-hosts' in /home#/username/ on line #
            Unable to select database
In phpMyAdmin "flush hosts" results in the error:
            #1227 - Access denied; you need the RELOAD privilege for this operation

Solution:

If the connection script resides on the Just Host server, please change the hostname to localhost.

If the connection script is making a remote connection to our server and you are using the domain.com as the hostname, please try the server's hostname such as host#.Justhost.com or server's IP. To determine either of these two, log into the cPanel to view the information in the Stats box on left side.
