MySQL Connection Problems when going to Admin area


Recommended Posts

Can anyone explain this error:


Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) in /home/www/path on line 19

Unable to connect to database server!



Accessing the public area of the store is fine, but when I try to access the /admin/ dir, I get this error. Can anyone give me advice or suggestions? Thanks


Also, what is the proper CHMOD code to protect the configuration file? Thanks again.

Problem solved. It must have slipped my mind that there are two config files...


I still need the proper CHMOD setting for the configuration files. Any ideas?
