My site has suddenly gone completely down due to a MySQL error!
Please help...


My php scripts give this error:
Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (11) in /home/morthian/public_html/_scripts/connect.php on line 9

Fatal error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (11) in /home/morthian/public_html/_scripts/connect.php on line 9


phpMyAdmin shows this:
#2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)
