So everything was working fine a few hours ago. I restarted my computer to update some software and now I can't connect to mysql via phpmyadmin or any of my locally hosted sites. The sites come up with database setting errors and phpmyadmin won't allow me to log in. The weird thing is that I can log in fine using any user via Terminal or using mysql workbench. I know that the mysql server instance is running fine and the login details haven't changed or been edited. Any ideas?
I'm running mac osx 10.6 with the bundled apache server and php. Latest version of mysql. The software updates were: security update, safari, iTunes and a graphics update.
