Hi guys/galls! First thanks for all the help you’ve given the community with 0.7.1480 installs.
Personally I haven’t been able yet to make it all the way through the install. This has had more to do with Apple’s distro of Apache/PHP/MySQL that anything with Magento. I’ve solve those issues to date and remain mired.
My current issue is related to mysql.sock. Apple places this in /var/mysql/mysql.sock. I’ve edited php.ini to include:
mysql.default_socket = /var/mysql/mysql.sock
mysqli.default_socket = /var/mysql/mysql.sock
Yet I still receive an error:
SQLSTATE[HY000]  Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/tmp/mysql.sock’ (2)
I have replaced the Mysql.php and Mysqli.php files as recommended in the forum. In that forum I noticed that there is the possibility that this configuration value will not be recognized by Magento’s install. I have not yet changed the config.xml as it was not clear in the forum posts if this was necessary to complete the work around.
Is there a work around for this yet or should I simply wait for the next release?
