Project Description

A coder came onto my server to fix a communications issue. The server was He went and updated the DB's (mysql, sql, cgi) without my knowledge and now my websites, which are older and probably not compatible with the new versions, do not work anymore. I need to undo what he did so that everything works again

I can view and do most things with the websites still. But the server itself seems to be blocked from communicating outside of the server (i.e. the filezilla server can't connect to the server and the Internet explorer can't reach the internet.

The banners that reference my sql server are getting errors like:

Line 101: Dim Conn,sql, RS

Line 102: Conn = [url removed, login to view]("[url removed, login to view]")

Line 103: [url removed, login to view]("provider=SQLOLEDB.1;driver={sql Server};server=[url removed, login to view]

Line 104: sql = "vsp_RecordReferrals " & w & "," & r & "," & p & ",'" & now() & "'"

Line 105: [url removed, login to view](sql)


Cannot connect to MySQL server: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10055)

These all worked before...but the upgrades he made are screwing it up.

I don't think the fixes will take that long to a server admin who knows his stuff. Please do not bid more than $50.
