How does GF get mysql config info?
Setting up GF on a shared web host (I own the host) to evaluate.

I have installed GF, installed mysql, created a new db (mysql_install_db) and attempted to configure GF. The problem is the mysql db is not in the default location (because there are multiple mysql db's running.) But GF keeps trying to access the default location:

Error: Could not connect to database. Reason: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

The socket is actually at a different location but I haven't figured out how to get GF to recognize the different location. Any hints?
