I'm trying to get phpMyAdmin working, connecting locally to mysql from Centos 6.3 running in VMWare Player.
mysqladmin -u root -p status indicates that mysql is running.
Both my.cnf and config.inc.php point to socket `/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock``.
I've tried 127.0.0.1/phpMyAdmin and localhost.0.0.1/phpMyAdmin.
In both cases I get the message:
#2002 - Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (13) The server is not responding (or the local server's socket is not correctly configured)
Can anyone tell me what else to check?
