Any way to fix the error?

Well, since the error is happening in your included db.php file, there isn't anything we can do to help you fix your code.

However, since the error plainly states that you can not connect to mysql through a socket, I would say you could probably fix this by not trying to connect to mysql through a socket.

There has to be something different about that particular page if you are using that same script from your other pages.

The only other thing I can offer is a link or two:

But I don't know if it will help or not.
