I managed to get the installer started, unfortunately now I can’t get past the database screen. I have tried the following:
Using a mysql 5 database:
localhost -> Access denied
localhost:/tmp/mysql5.sock -> Unknown MySQL server host ‘localhost:/tmp/mysql5.sock’
remote connection -> Access denied
remote connection, with port (http://www.mysqlserver.com:0123) -> Unknown MySQL server host
Using a mysql 4 database:
localhost -> Mysqli prepare error: Unknown command
localhost:/tmp/mysql.sock -> Unknown MySQL server host
remote connection -> Mysqli prepare error: Unknown command
I’ve triple checked the user and password, so that shouldn’t be the issue.
My host tried their best in helping out and this is what their conclusion is:
For connections to our MySQL5 server you have to use localhost:/tmp/mysql5.sock instead of localhost and the port number is 3307 instead of 3306. We tried to configure your shopping cart application to use the MySQL5 socket (and port 3307), but it appears that it is not designed with the possibility to change the socket in mind.
Where would I need to start looking in the application to add socket functionality? Any other ideas how to tackle this problem?
