Hi There,

Hi There,

I'm getting
#2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's
socket is not correctly configured)
 even tho I have this in my

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie';
/* Server parameters */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'localhost';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'root';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = 'PASS';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['connect_type'] = 'tcp';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['compress'] = false;
/* Select mysqli if your server has it */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysql';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = false;

mysql -u root -p

 on the shell lets me login just fine. Why would phpmyadmin not be
able to connect? I also got troubles connecting to my db with
Joomla... :(

Any help is appreciated!
Thank you!

Hi Ron,

This is no PHPmyadmin group. :-)
You might get luckier in their forum.

This thread explains a few common mistakes:,64808,64808

Read it. :-)

A wild suggestions: use
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['socket'] = '/tmp/mysql.sock';
instead of tcp.
