From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; T312461; Q312461)

Description of problem:
I updated from php-mysql 4.0.6-7 to 4.0.6-12 from the up2date command. After 
that I could not connect to the mysql database from my web site using php.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.I forced the re-install of php & php-mysql 4.0.6-7.

Actual Results:  Now it works!

Expected Results:  Now it works

Additional info:

I think Red Hat should check out it's updates to see if they work, before they 
tell us to install them.

My experience:

if you look to PHP info page, there you find:

MYSQL_SOCKET /tmp/mysql.sock

but in /etc/my.cnf is:


and in /etc/php.ini is default setting:

mysql.default_socket =

My "non correct" solution (because changing of mysql.default_socket in php.ini 
doesn't have efect):

If you make a link:

ln -s /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock /tmp/mysql.sock

connection to MySQL will established.
