Ehm, you really don't want to advise this. A proper solution: /etc/my.cnf: [mysqld] socket = /var/run/mysql/socket Then: mkdir /var/run/mysql chown mysql:staff /var/run/mysql chmod 750 /var/run/mysql This assumes users in group staff are allowed to access mysql. DO NOT use the mysql group - that is best left with only the mysql user in it. -- Melvyn ======================================================= FreeBSD sarevok.webteckies.org 5.2-CURRENT FreeBSD 5.2-CURRENT #0: Wed Jan 28 18:01:18 CET 2004 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SAREVOK_NOAPM_NODEBUG i386 =======================================================
