Works Locally Not On Server

Works Locally Not On Server

I created my pages using DataAssist and tested them locally, then I exported my db as a .sql dump then imported it into my db called "mud09" on the server.

Okay so I imported the .sql via PHPAdmin and it created the table, etc. I then saved a copy of my Connection file locally called it server.php then changed within the resume_Insert.php the line that said <?php require_once("Connections/mud.php"); ?>
which was my original connection file to <?php require_once("Connections/server.php"); ?>

I then uploaded all files to the server and now I receive the following error when visiting resume_Insert.php:

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

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

Okay what did I overlook? Really need to get this application built:(


Can anyone in the forum assist me, pleese....

First, do not change the name of the connections file.

You should make a duplicate of the mud.php file, then change it to use the correct information for MySQL Server, username and Password and database name fr the remote server.

There are variable names used through out the application that will reference variables created in the mud.php connection file that will not exist in the server.php connection file.

as for the error you are getting, it indicates that you cannot refer to the mySQL server by the name localhost, check with your host to determine the correct name to refer to the mysql server by.
