can someone please help with this as all of the mysql details are correct and it loads nicely once the box has booted and i do a service start manually.

it just occurred to me that since it is moaning about a mysql.sock error, is it not possible that mydns is starting before mysqld and therefore cannot connect?

i figured out my own questions.

mydns is very much easier to use than bind as it runs on sql - mysql or postgresql. so updating the records is really simple.

managed to fix the mysql issue, i was right - mydns was starting before mysqld - therefore it would never be able to connect would it? here is a forum post on changing the service boot order in fedora (i suppose this will work in any red hat variation):
