"Establishing connection with socket failed." Please help
March 13, 2007 07:10PM
Hello,
I'm a happy user of Sphider and until recently was running it with no problems on a server running Linux. We switched to GoDaddy and chose the Windows server. Now Sphider has problems:

1. domain-name.com/admin/admin.php now just brings up admin.php, it does not challenge with 'auth.php'

2. I can install the tables in MySQL just fine, but when I try to index the site, I get the message above: "Establishing connection with socket failed."

I don't know that much about php, but if someone could help me out and show me what to change, that would be very helpful! I think this was a topic on the old forum, but unfortunately, I can't get to all of that information.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

Hard to tell what the problem is. Probably your server doesn't allow to access sockets. You can check the page http://www.php.net/fsockopen and try to run the simple example there (Example 1511). If it fails, you can record the error message, and ask your provider what the problem might be.
