Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 55577
mysql.sock not where default wants it
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:59 EDT
Description of Problem:
rad hat puts mysql.sock in /var/lib/mysql instead of /temp, as is default in the .confs of apache, mysql and php - therefore you cannot contact mysql after installation using apache and php. you have to change all three .confs in order to do so. patch or at least hint somewhere would be nice.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. have system with apache and php
2. install mysql
3. try contacting via phpMyAdmin
no connect .sock cannot be found
patch would be nice or a hint in mysql man or howto
It works where it is - mysql is compiled and configurated that way (see
/etc/my.cnf). It's tested with php and known to be working.
