strange install error

Postby jasonnolan » Sat Dec 30, 2006 2:00 pm

Hi Everyone;

I'm doing a fresh install of OJS 2.1.1 in the hopes of finally moving our 1.9 version over ot it.

The install instructions say: "4. Open a web browser to <> and follow the on-screen installation instructions."

This seems simple, but I get the following response when I do so: "DB Error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)" Since I've not set up any db for this install yet, and my hosting service doesn't use 'localhost' as an option, I'm sort of stuck. I know the server I will be using for the install, but am unsure of how to go forward.

Any suggestions?
