[REBOL] -cannot connect to localhost-(mysql protocol)
From: tim-johnsons:web at: 17-Jan-2010 18:03
Hi ally you mysql-protocol users:
Since these emails are archived, I'll share my problem and the
solution. I recently installed slackware linux and my reliable
mysql protocol could not connect. With the error message:
cannot connect to localhost
It has been years since I used slackware. I noted some references to
this problem by googling
Where dockimbel assesses the problem correctly.
That is, mysql is not set to take TCP/IP connections.
On slackware I edited /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld the following
Placing the comment marker at the beginning of
the line to disable it.
On ubuntu systems, /mnt/uroot/etc/mysql/my.cnf would
be the file to edit, and windows should have a
similar mysql config file.
