Getting some errors when trying to install phpBB


#1

Can anyone help me fix this please?

Here are the errors:

Warning: mysql_connect(): Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’ (2) in /home/.mainard/coxhed/riverstars.net/forums/db/mysql4.php on line 48

Could not connect to the database

I suspect that this is a new database, and you just set it up, and the install script is failing? If that’s right, you’ll just need to be a bit more patient, it can take up to two hours to get a new datbase going. If the time frame is longer than that, you should contact support.

Same errors. Waited a week (well, more or less set it down and came back to it). Sent a query to dreamhost…

Anyone figure anything out yet? And what server are your databases on?
