It's really strange. I downloaded the latest 4.0.16 RPM from mysql.com
and installed it to my Fedora system, and did *not* do anything else
(Actually I am completely new to mysql).
I wrote a test php script to test mysql (ftp_connect('localhost',
'root');), but got the following error:
Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through
socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/custcare/dbconn.inc on line 2
I ran phpBB2 installation page, got the same error. But it can connect
to mysql using my computer name. Anyone can help???
