Geeklog or Webhost issue?

After proceeding to the second step of the installation, I recieve the following error: Warning: Can\'t connect to local MySQL server through socket \'/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock\' (111) in [path to file censored]journal/system/databases/mysql.class.php on line 104 Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Can\'t connect to local MySQL server through socket \'/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock\' (111) in [path to file censored]journal/system/databases/mysql.class.php on line 104 Cannnot connect to DB server Is this something I need to reslove with Geeklog or my Webhost? I do have access to a MySQL database, and I have set the appropriate database name, user name, and password in the config.php file. Would it maybe be an issue with the $_DB_host line? Thanks.

Hmm, this almost sounds like MySQL isn't running at all. So, yes, I would try contacting the hosting service.

bye, Dirk

Thanks again, Dirk. (I had the wrong path in the $_DB_host section)
