PDO not connecting to MySQL

Dormilich
8,658 Expert Mod 8TB
Hi,

Iím having a problem connecting to my local MySQL db. my PHP DB code throws the following Exception:
PDO::__construct() [<a href='pdo.--construct'>pdo.--construct</a>]: [2002] No such file or directory (trying to connect via unix:///tmp/mysql.sock)
I suspect the socket being wrong since all my MySQL GUI clients connect via /opt/local/var/run/mysql5/mysqld.sock.

does anyone know, if thatís a correct assumption?

thanks Dormi
