trippin' on mysql.socks error
System: RedHat 7.0
Problem: When I click on a hyperlink (which is referrenced by jump.cgi at the bottom status bar), I get the following error:

DBSQL (6659): Fatal Error: Unable to connect to the SQL server. Reason: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (111) at /var/www/cgi-bin/jump.cgi line 65

So it appears it cannot for some reason connect to MySQL, and the reason quite possibly is that when I go emacs mysql.sock in '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock', there is nothing in that file.. yet, when I ran 'perl /setup/setup.cgi' to set everything up it didn't report any problems.

Is there a DBD::Mysql module that could have gone missing here, 'somehow' ? I used CPAN to load mysql-msql-modules whatever, along with DBI.

Now I am totally dumbfounded.

Any links you provide would be greatly appreciated for download of whatever it is I may need.

Super Dope thanks,

Daywizard
