Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' error

PHP Warning: mysql_connect() [<a href='function.mysql-connect'>function.mysql-connect</a>]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/username/public_html/includes/functions/database.php on line 19

 

 

I see this error frequently in my error log, my host tells me that when they restore somebody's database they have to restart the MySQL service on the server which causes that error and a brief outage.

 

I don't know much about how servers function, is it normal that they restart MySQL each time they restore a client's DB? I am on a shared server.

 

Thanks

Isabella
