It returns the error due to login name and password I used. I used "root" and its password. But, somehow it did not work.

I created the new user and then tried again.

It worked on this time.

Thanks again.

I'm having an error connecting to the database for the admin section of my website and I think it relates to this topic. It's weird because I'm able to connect to the database for every other section of the site. Here is the error when I try to log in to the admin section:

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) in /data/16/1/57/83/1546246/user/1664829/htdocs/admin/functions.php on line 6
Database connectivity Error

The function in question (line 6 is the if statement):

function dbcon(){
global $host, $user, $pass, $db,$link;
if(!($link=mysql_connect($host,$user,$pass) && mysql_select_db($db)))
sprintf("Internal error %d %s",mysql_errno(),mysql_error());
return 0;
return 1;

Everything works fine in PHP4, its when I switched to PHP5 that I started getting errors. Any idea whats wrong?

Has nothing to do with the mysql extension not being bundled.

If you manage your own server, ensure that the server is running (probably it is) on the local machine, and make sure right socket file is used. This should help with that:


If not, contact your host.
