How to turn off MySQL or SQL Server when an error occurs
Posted by Beau Brown on 19 March 2010 03:50 PM
Sometimes, a database error will occur that results in you not being able to get back into the Cart32 web administration area; error 3709, for example. If this happens and you need to disable your MySQL or Microsoft SQL Server database for troubleshooting purposes, there is a way to do this using the Cart32.ini file:

1. Find and open the cart32.ini file. Usually, it will be a hidden file located in the Cart32 directory (full install) or cgi-bin directory (web install).

2. Open cart32.ini using a text editing program, such as notepad.

3. Find the line that says UseSQLServer=1 and change the 1 to a 0.

4. Save the cart32.ini file.

This will disable the database connection and allow you back into the Cart32 web administration.
