  • Hello,

    There are three issues here:

    1. The software was unable to connect to MySQL, possibly the socket did not exist, check the database server.
    2. You're using PHP 7.3, but Burning Board 4.1 is so old, it only supports up to PHP 7.2, newer versions cause errors.
    3. Burning Board 4.1 is already end of life, there are no updates or security fixes provided for this version anymore. You should consider upgrading to a newer version.
