eFiction errors

apps

#1

I’ve been trying to install eFiction on my site, but I keep running into errors at the script-install-tables step. The basic errors look like this (though I’ve changed the path names here with …'s):

Warning: mysql_connect(): Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘…mysqld.sock’ (2) in …data/dbconfig.php on line 8

Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in …/data/dbconfig.php on line 9

Warning: mysql_query(): Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘…/mysqld.sock’ (2) in …efiction/install.php on line 99

Warning: mysql_query(): A link to the server could not be established in …/efiction/install.php on line 99
Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/…/mysqld.sock’ (2)

Can anyone help me? >_> I’m not very familiar with PHP either, though I’ve installed some CGI scripts before.

Thanks~

You need to change the config file to reference the remote database server via the user / password / hostname you (hopefully) created when you setup the database.
