I keep getting an error when I try to run a redmine installation.
This is what comes up.
mysql_adapter.rb:589:in `real_connect’: Can’t connect to local MySQL
server through socket ‘/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’ (2) (Mysql::Error)
The database server is a remote server, and I can’t see why
activerecord is complaining about the absence of a local socket.
The part of the installation to initialize the database went fine.
Is there a small test app I can use to check if the database
connectivity part is working properly? Something read a row or test
the existings of some tables?
