I downloaded bbPress into my wordpress directory, as I am planning on integrating bbPress into my wordpress site, and I go to http://www.mysitename/bbpress and the installer comes up. I put in what should be my database “name, user, and password” and I get the errors:
Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/usr/local/mysql-5.0/data/mysql.sock’ (2) in /home/content/m/y/g/mygreensprout/html/bbpress/bb-includes/backpress/class.bpdb.php on line 123
! There was a problem connecting to the database you specified.
Please check the settings, then try again.
