I lease web space from a company that does not support Mysql, but allows me to install it in my web space. When I execute a perl script which calls Mysql, it calls the default Mysql server, not mine. How do I work around this? I'm using DBI to make the call - do I need to install that module pointing to my Mysql server?
Also, after my install the other night, I was able to login to the mysql prompt and create my tables, but today I can't, I get theis error:
ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock'
Thanks in advance for any advice!!
