I am trying to setup a web based email setup on RedHat Linux 7 platform. I
am using Horde 2.2, Imp 1.2, Php 4, Apache 1.3 alongwith the following rpms
required for the MySql setup: (I am running the entire setup on my single
host for test purposes)
Although the required version was 3.23.24 for mysql and mysql-server, these
are not available at all the three ftp sites within my reach and mentioned
in the "horde-latest.README": (ftp.horde.org, ftp.sunsite.org.net and
Now the problem is as follows:
1) When i try to check the test.php3 i get the following status of the
installed modules (alongwith other information):
IMAP Support: Yes.
LDAP Support: No.
MySql Support: Yes.
PostgreSQL Support: No.
(I have not yet configured LDAP and PostgreSQL.)
But when i access "Click here to test PHPLIB for Horde" link i get this
Warning: Cant connect to local MySql server through socket
'/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (111) in /var/www/horde-phplib/db_mysql.inc on
I checked this code (at line 73) and found mysql_pconnect() thus i assume
(on the basis of my limited knowledge) that the problem might be with the
database server connection.
The MySql server is running. File mysql.sock exists. The database for the
horde-phplib and imp is created. The command "mysql < mysql_create.sql"
runs. I have the entire setup on a single machine for test purposes (i.e.
MySql server, Apache Server and etc.). I have yet to run the cinfiguration
file "setup.php3" on the horde directory of my web site.
When i run "mysqladmin version" in the output i get that the localhost is
connected via Unix sock, and when i run "mysqladmin -h `hostname` version
variables" i get that the localhost is connected via TCP/IP port. I think
that either the socket or the TCP/PI port should have been used, as given
with the mysql configuration.
I have given all the details intentionally to give you an idea of the the
All kind of thoughts are appreciated and anticipated.
Thank you very much.
