And here's the first problem:

Logging into mysql using the command-line client works fine:

rune@godzooky:~> mysql -h localhost -u root -p
Enter password:
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 2
Server version: 5.1.33-log SUSE MySQL RPM

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.


When I run the ISPConfig installer:

MySQL database to create [dbispconfig]:

MySQL charset [utf8]:

Unable to connect to mysql server Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
MySQL server hostname [localhost]:

Looks like the mysql socket it's looking for isn't being created:

godzooky:/var/lib/mysql # ls -a
.  ..  ibdata1  ib_logfile0  ib_logfile1  mysql  mysql-bin.000001  mysql-bin.000002  mysql-bin.000003  mysql-bin.000004  mysql-bin.index
My existing server machine (that this one will eventually be replacing) is on suse 11 64 bit, I checked on that out of curiosity and there's no socket in /var/lib/mysql on there either

Don't really know what to do next now, anyone have any ideas?
