Dear Members,

I have installed PHP MySQL and Apache through macports and I did it
successfully at first attempt, made some changes later and now mysql client
cannot connect to server using /opt/local/var/run/mysql5/mysqld.sock.

I changed owner ship of /opt/local folder to my local account and later
realized it was a mistake so reverted back its ownership to root, but I am
still facing this issue. Can anyone help me with that. I cannot find
mysqld.sock in the /opt/local/var/run/mysql5 folder anymore
