could not connect error 2002
Tried that and it comes up with could not connect to MySQL instance at localhost. It mentions the socket /tmp/mysql.sock (2) (2002)
thanks for the suggestions though, would be nice to see better support options for this issue I have looked around and seem to find a couple of mac users with the same issue.
The mysql docs on resetting UNIX setting is for advanced users, even copying and pasting their instruction into terminal doesn't work.
anyway thanks for the reply
