3) You are trying to connect over tcp when the
database is unix sockets only, or vice versa.
When I connect to my linux box from my windows box -
I'm using the freeware GUI for mysql - SQLyog - I
believe it connects TCP....it uses port 3306.
Does that mean the horde database could be using unix
sockets?? How do I determine this?? This seems funny
to me b/c I can log into the Horde Framwork just fine,
but when I try logging into the /kronolith part -
that's where I get the error...
Please someone help me!
