MySQL Socket Error in phpMyAdmin
While accessing phpMyAdmin, you may get the following error.
#2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)
This is due to the missing socket file in the location /tmp.
The socket path which is specified in the phpMyAdmin configuration file is /tmp/mysql.sock.
$ vi /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/config.inc.php
cfg['Server']['socket'] = '/tmp/mysql.sock';
If mysql.sock is missing in /tmp, then create a link to the mysql.sock file in /var/lib/mysql.
$ ln -s /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock /tmp/mysql.sock
There is also another fix for this issue.
1. Open the phpMyadmin config file "config.inc.php".
2.Locate the line:
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'localhost';
3.Replace 'localhost' with '127.0.0.1' and save.
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = '127.0.0.1';
This will also fix the issue.
