Description Nathan G. Grennan 2002-03-05 13:43:28 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8+) Gecko/20020227

Description of problem:
mysql is set to refer to mysql.sock in /var/lib/mysql(mysql's home directory).
In the past it was set to /tmp, and /tmp is the mysql default. I believe this
change was made to clean up the /tmp directory and maybe add security. After
upgrading to php-*-4.0.6-12 it again tries to refer to mysql.sock in /tmp even
though the latest redhat mysql's my.cnf refers to it in /var/lib/mysql. This
will break any website that depends on php-mysql and is using the standard
configuration. Two workarounds are to either make a symlink from
/var/lib/mysql.sock to /tmp/mysql.lock, not a great way. Another is to change
/etc/my.cnf and change the socket= line.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.0.6-12

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to php-*-4.0.6-12
2. Go to a url that depends on php to read data out of mysql
3. See the error message about no able to find /tmp/mysql.sock

Actual Results:  See the error message about no able to find /tmp/mysql.sock

Expected Results:  See no error message and the page to load normally.
