I am in the installation process of my photopost and received the following error:
"Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/content/a/d/m/adminbfp/html/gallery/photopost623/install.php on line 570
I cannot connect to the PhotoPost MySQL server. [host:$host][mysql_user:$mysql_user][mysql_password:$mysql_password]. Check your config-inc.php for the correct settings and rerun.
And ideas on what I need to do to fix this?
Im a newbie and this is like the final step that I need to do before letting my website go live.
You need to make sure that you have mysql permissions to create the photopost database.
It would appear you do not. Either go back and edit the mysql user permissions on your server or try actually creating the actual database. On most host setups you need to create the database and create and assign user permissions. At least thats how its done on cpanel and plesk setups.
Thanks for your patience Chuck, Im completely self-taught so some of these concepts are brand new for me.
Lemme see if I can make sense of this:
I DO have an sql database created on my server entitled "gallery". I have checked the config file and all paths and passwords are correct.
Am I understanding you right that I need to edit the permissions on the gallery database? At this time the permissions show "web visible" (Im using Godaddy - I know, I know *cringe*). Is that what I need to be editing or is there something Im missing?
