    VBulletin online community (no offense) is no help.

    I have a few clients who are trying to run the latest VBulletin. 1 is on a dedicated server and 1 has a Virtual Host account.

    the dedicated server runs Fedora with CPanel build C55

    The virtual host is on a RH 8 with the latest Release. (We tried all versions of CPanel.)

    The problem is the same for both

    It works fine for maybe a week then they get a DB error. I usually have to do is root into /tmp and delete the sess files about 2-3 will do and the DB starts working for VBulletin again.

    What is going on?? Is this a MYSQL problem do we need to tweak it's performance or something? I know VBulletin is resource intensive but on a dedicated server I dont see any reason as to why it would not work.

    Its running a P4 2.4 with 1024 megs of ram on 2 80 Gig drives.

    Please help you masterminds behind Linux, cpanel, and web host admin. Thanks!

    VB is at 3.01 Anything older is probably going to be a problem.

    maybe I should have used a comma....

    They use the newest VBulletin, however 1 is hosted on a dedicated server and the other is used on Virtual Hosting.

    That would make me think it is a Server issue, not vBulletin. I use it (2.x) and have maintained various versions for others. I can run any version with maximum PHP security settings and never a problem.
