Is the MySQL DB created on the same server as my host system or a different one?
I ask because while I can't access my newly created DB via the hostname, I also can't access it locally:
balrog:~> mysql -Dapolloni_mt
ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
It's been about 12 hours since I created the DB and still no joy connecting to it.....
Does it usually take this long?
