  • Help Please! Install Problem on Apache Web Server...

    My web site is on an Apache web server running both PHP4 and MySQL 2.23

    I am trying to install the Lite version to verify that it works great on my server, then I will buy the full version to migrate my car club to. We are currently using UBB 6 and are located at thefbody.com

    Here are the errors I get after trying to install the software:

    Of course, anytime you see ?#?#?#, just means that I have replaced some folder names, etc for privacy purposes...

    ---------------------------
    URL In Window:

    [url]http://?#?#?#?.thefbody.com/?#?#?#?#/admin/install.php?step=3[/url]

    Error Displayed:

    Attempting to connect...

    Warning: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (111) in /?#?#?#/?#?#?#/?#?#?#/?#?#?#/?#?#?#/?#?#?#/?#?#?#/admin/db_mysql.php on line 31

    --------------------------

    I appreciate any help people can give me...

      How exactly would I go about doing that?

      The guy that owns this server doesn't know MySQL too much and only installed it on the server because of my request.

      So, if I have to go to him to ask him questions, I need a little more information....

      What/How would I tell him to check the permissions on /tmp?? I know there is no folder in my area with that name for it.

        Please have your friend as well as you visit:

        [url]http://www.mysql.com[/url] and read over the documentation and installation.

        [url]http://www.apache.org[/url] to learn more about the server software and how you can establish persmissions to certain folders.

          Well, after lots of searching and reading, I finally succeeded in my task!

          Here is the comment on the MySQL site that helped me solve my problem in only a couple of seconds:

          ----------
          If you keep getting: error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)' Some RPM's put the mysql.sock file in /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock instead of /tmp/mysql.sock I was pulling my hair out for ages over this! Small hack is to symlink it: "ln -s /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock /tmp"
          ----------


          By using their small hack, the version is now up and running properly.....

          Thanks for everyone's help!
