SQL Error


Recommended Posts

I am getting this error when I try to access MySQL, can anyone help me out? "please"

this error is preventing me from adding any contributions to my site which is a real pain.

 

#2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)

 

regards

Bruce

Hi

 

Thanks for posting afterdarkacc..

I'm a newbie with no knowledge of MySQL. But have an understnding that its really central to me making the changes to osc that I want if my store is going to do the stuff I want. I can see there are some contributions that allow you to run SQL scipts from Admin. Would either of you be able to answer a query I have about SL and scripts please?

If I already have phpMyAdmin on my server is there any benefit in having something like the run_sql add-on installed? And what do sql scripts do anyway? Hope you dont mind me butting in. Hope you can help.

Thanks!

No benefit at all unless you a scared/worried/tentative about using phpmy admin.

 

Sql scripts can change the table/table structure/add content, in fact anything you can do using phpmyadmin.

Table = file

 

Structure = fields in the table / type of data in a field/ size of the data in the field

 

Content = information actually stored in the table.
