I am tyring to install Magento ver. 0.6.14100 on a 1and1 dedicated managed server.
I had a few roadblocks to get this far but finally the install is running. When I get to the configuration step, where I input all of the database details, I get an error when I try to continue past this. All my db usernames, passwords are correct. Host is localhost on standard port.
This is the error I get.
SQLSTATE[HY000]  Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/tmp/mysql.sock’ (2)
Any ideas what may be causing this and preventing me from continuing with the installation?
