Socket Problem again

Hey Jason, Thank you for the conversation on Wednesday. I spent the rest of Wednesday and all of Thursday cleaning up the root and hosts directory of my Computer. I am back to this original issue of:

Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/content/54/7456454/html/Connections/canaturalmysql.php on line 9

Fatal error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/content/54/7456454/html/Connections/canaturalmysql.php on line 9

MAMP PRO is working fine,

You showed me how to look code on my connections string in Dreamweaver CS5. I can only reference localhost and I could not put and save the remote server as per your instructions (You referenced Dynamic Connections)

I tried to create and /etc/my.cnf by copying the MAMP PRO template and that did not work. I also tried to understand the datadir and the basedir and cannot understand where to apply.

I do understand that the /var/lib/mysql/mysgl.sock does not exist on my computer and that the tmp/sock is within MAMP. I cannot figure how to get the computer to understand this and that is why I ended up confusing my computer, hence my last problem.

Obviously I need the database string to work in order to get this website up using Web Assist.

I am also talked to Lauren about this continued issue and she is responding to my question of upgrading to Super Suite.

Thank you for anything you can do to help me get the first php page finally online.
