Cannot open local connections as non-root user
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:28:59 EDT
Trying to connect to a local mysql server fails as a non-root user.
The /var/lib/mysql directory is mode 0700 and the clients are trying to
open the socket /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
Fix: make /var/lib/mysql mode 0711
