Vanilla 2 installation ignores everything after colon (:) in the host field.

edited March 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Hey! I host my site with 1&1 and I was trying to install Vanilla 2.
I ran the installation, filled all the fields.
But I got a proble with connection. My Database Host address is: localhost:/tmp/mysql5.sock
But Vanilla seems to ignore evrything after the colon, because I got error:
Access denied for user: 'xxx@localhost' (Using password: YES)
Then I tried to type something else and separated it with colon... I typed hello:world
And got error: Unknown MySQL server host 'hello' (1)
So it ignored the text after colon again. I don't know if this is a bug or sort of protection.
But what should I do?
