Description of problem:
The new rpm php-4.0.6-12 (or php-mysql) sets mysql_socket /tmp/mysql.sock.
The default mysql rpm put the socket into /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
The previous php rpm set the socket to the /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install the new php rpm
2.try to create a database connection from php without specifying the socket
leads to an error ("cannot connect through socket /tmp/mysql.sock")
3.this leads particularily to problems with phplib ...
Actual Results: error message, no database connection can be created
Expected Results: database connection
everything can be patched by creating a symbolic link from
/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock to /tmp/sock
Just wanted to mention that I see this bug too and I came up with the same
workaround. I hope a new php package is available soon since I imagine alot of
people will not realize how to fix this..
Just ran into the same issue myself.
ln -s /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock /tmp/mysql.sock
fixed the problem temporarly for now.
I think edit php.ini and edit it to
mysql.default_socket = /tmp/mysql.sock
should fix it to without having to recompile
