When trying to install a new drupal with
drush si standard --db-url=mysql://root@localhost/drushtest
I get the following error Message:
[...] SQLSTATE[HY000]  Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket [...]
MySQL User is root with no password and the database drushtest was already created. I'm using Ubuntu with Xampp and guessing that the incorrect mysql.sock is used.
ps -ax|grep mysql
says that my mysql.sock lies within
Has somebody a clue how to solve this error?
Thanks in advance
