I was following this adobe article
) to set up
PHP and MySQL and connect a MySQL database to dreamweaver in Mac OS 10.4.8 and
I kept getting:
"Can't connect to MySQL server through socket '/var/mysql/mysql.sock' ERROR#:
After a lot of searching I came across
there was an error in the PHP and MySQL connection or something.
Anyway all I had to do was type (in a TERMINAL window):
$ sudo mkdir /var/mysql
$ sudo ln -s /tmp/mysql.sock /var/mysql/mysql.sock
and that fixed the problem, otherwise the adobe article worked very well.
Check out the "this article" link to get the fix straight from the horse's
