    I wonder if someone can put some light on a very strange scenario?

    We have 3 sites from over 100 sites which are all running the same software OSC based cart - for their website. The three in question cannot see their websites because it "cannot connect to the server as an example

    which would initially make you think that the server was down - but strangely this is not the case because if you goto the link below you will see that this is not the case.

    Now I have managed to work out that this is something to do with the database connection as when I change the database it works from to another it comes up with the correct errors.

    However if I try to copy the database and use that it then comes back to the initial problem (cannot find server). To confuse even further I put the exact same file and database on a different server and it works fine and dandy.

    Does anyone know why this might do this and if so what the fix is?

    Thank you for reading my problem.
