    Question IPB Warning

    <www.criticalsecurity.net>
    SQL error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)
    SQL error code:
    Date: Monday 13th of March 2006 06:58:36 PM

    And on another different but related site.

    <www.hackthissite.org>
    MySQL Connection Error at 42. Please contact an administrator.

    Is this an error on my local machine or is it something on their server? I have checked to see if I have the file in question '/tmp/mysql.sock' and I do not. So it must be their's I would assume. I also looked into IPB and it is apparently like a 'mother hen' program that does the little tedious chores that are always there on a large user server.

    does someone run your webserver for you, or do you run your own server? if someone runs it for you, i suggest you talk to them. if you've absolutely not changed anything, then it's probably only something they can fix.
