Description of problem:
The most recent update to php, php-4.0.6-12, fails to set the proper path in
php.ini in /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock and the default is used, /tmp/mysql.sock...
which is wrong and you get errors and such.

the rpms installed are:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.update using the various php-4.0.6-12 rpms
2.try to access your mysql database's through a php interface


Actual Results:  3.you get errors "/var/mysql.sock could not be found" etc.

Expected Results:  pages load as they did moments before you updated the php

Additional info:

open php.ini and add:
mysql.default_socket =/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock

and restart apache:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart


this only took me a short time to fix, but i know it would have made me pull my
hair out a few years back... hope it helps someone...
