Has anyone come across this problem? Once I get drupal all ready to install on my localhost I go to the URL and start going through the installation process and when it comes to my database it fails.
So I import the site into Acquia Dev Desktop, create the database, and then go to the URL, select the type of installation and then when I come to the database information page it fails.
Failed to connect to your database server. The server reports the following message: SQLSTATE[HY000]  Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2).
I can't find any helpful documentation on this issue. Can anyone help?
