CPanel Error: Error while connecting to MySQL. Failover enacted

Written by Mike on February 21, 2009 – 12:36 pm -

CPanel of any domain shows following Error on MySQL Databases Section of Left Hand Side Panel

Error while connecting to MySQL. Failover enacted.


This error comes when Perl modules for database are outdated OR not installed. You can install them using following Commands:

root@server [~]# perl -MCPAN -e shell

cpan> install Bundle::CPAN
cpan> reload cpan
cpan> install HTTP:ateate
cpan> install HTTP:Date
cpan> install Net::AIM::Connection
cpan> install Net::AIM
cpan> install Tie::IxHash
cpan> install DBI
cpan> install DBD::mysql

Restart MySQL.
