    I have a problem with postfix and mysql. Postfix is not able to connect to mysql. The error is

    postfix/cleanup[9788]: warning: connect to mysql server localhost: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock'

    but mysqld.sock exists

    srwxrwxrwx 1 mysql mysql 0 Oct 17 10:20 /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock

    and when I try to connect like

    mysql -u mail_admin -p -S /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock

    everything works.

    what could be the problem?
