comment Freebsd change default Internet channel route

comment Can't connect to MySQL server on '127.0.0.1' + Postfix
Be aware that localhost != 127.0.0.1 in mysql. When you use "localhost" in mysql it attempts to use the socket instead of a tcp connection to 127.0.0.1

comment Permanent Connection Between Webserver and Database Server
Not always true. PHP provides "persistent" connections that are not closed when the script terminates. Other platforms provide connections pools that are kept open and reused.

comment Resetting salted Drupal admin password
I assume this is on a new drupal 7 install? The newpassSALT solution is specifically for an old drupal install with the "SALT" module installed.

comment Cannot log in with created user in mysql
Yes. localhost has special meaning in mysql it means you are connecting via the local socket. '%' matches any host arriving via a TCP connection. localhost is not the same as 127.0.0.1.
