I'm moving a website (php/mysql) from an Ubuntu server to a OSX 10.6 server. I've set up apache to run php scripts and setup the newest version of mysql on the mac. I just copied all of the php files and dumped/imported all of the mysql databases (including the mysql users database).
When I visit the page being served on the Mac the page is able to connect to the database, but not query. Specifically this function
is returning this error message
NO SUCH FILE OR DIRECTORY
The reason it's strange is that I'm able to change the php connection strings for mysql on the Ubuntu server so that it points to the Mac server and the page works correctly (so it seems mysql is correctly set up on the mac and definitely contains all of the users and tables it should).
Thinking it was something to do with file permissions on the mac, I've changed all of the files 755 and it hasn't helped.
Any ideas? Thanks!!
UPDATE: I've found this error which I'm relatively certain is related to this problem in /var/log/apache2/error_log
PHP Warning: mysql_query(): A link to the server could not be established
