    Hi

    I have a multiserver setup on Debian 6, my websites all of a sudden cant connect to the db server.

    I tried to restart mysql on the db server and I get the following error.

    ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)

    Please help

    Thanks

    Have ou changed any settings in the my.cnf file or installed a Linux update which might have changed settings in that file? Do you get any error messages in the syslog?

    Thanks for you super speedy response.

    I managed to find out how to fix it on the internet.

    I hadn't done an update or anything like that.

    To fix it i changed the socket path from /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock

    to

    /tmp/mysql.sock

    and now it's working.

    Is this ok to do?
