I’m trying to install phpSlash 0.8.1.1 on one of my domains, and I’m at the point in the process where I believe I have to use what is essentially a web configuration type interface. After entering all neccessary mySQL database information (database was setup before I attempted this), I’m getting an error and I’m not sure where to start on fixing it.
This is the error I’m getting:
Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’ (2) in /home/.marvelous/aeroxx/jaxslash.com/phpslash/phpslash-0.8.1.1/public_html/config_setup.php on line 918
Could not log into mysql
I could not log in to your mysql database. Error: 929: Could not login to localhost as jaxslash (pass: “xxxxxx”) – Server said Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’ (2)
I’ve tried setting the value of the ‘database host’ to ‘localhost’ and to ‘inko.dreamhost.com’
Anyone have any suggestions?
