The problem is; I’ve never explicitly told bbPress to connect via a local socket, and since I’m not a Unix expert, I didn’t really comprehend the error message. I now understand a bit more of what it says and that I should instruct bbPress to connect via TCP/IP instead. However, isn’t this something bbPress should have available as an option in the
config.php file somehow? Or even just as an automatic switch it figures out based on whether
BBDB_HOST is set (or is different from
localhost) or not?
