Yeah I do that too. But I was reluctant to do that with something that just seemed like a fix for a problem that shouldn’t even exist.
If the server with my scripts is configured correctly, then I should never have to specify a .sock file. I hope... -----Original Message----- From: Jackson Miller [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Thursday, September 25, 2003 10:15 AM To: Donald Tyler Subject: Re: [PHP] mysql.lock file location On Thursday 25 September 2003 8:55, you wrote: > Is there no way for me to change the default location for PHP?

Then you leave the default settings out of mysql_connect all together. I _think_ that you can then connect with mysql_connect("localhost","username","password") and it will use the socket file set in php.ini. If that doesn't work you can try editing the client section of /etc/my.cnf Also, I always set up my apps in a way that the db connection is only in one place and just called from all the scripts that need it. You can do this with an include or using object oriented coding. This way if you ever have to make a system wide change you don't have to go to all the scripts and change it.
