Problem with socket (or something like that)

edited April 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi everone! I have a problem with setting up the db. I get the following error message: “We couldn't connect to the server you provided (localhost). The database responded with the following message: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)” Yes, the db exist and the user name is ok. I tested it via ssh. This is only the second time that I have to use MySQL on my server and so I looked up my setting in a Rails app I programmed. It says: socket: /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock But I can't remember why I knew that the socket is there ... So, how can I change the socket? Or is there another solution?
