How do I make my MySQL server use TCP connections instead of Unix sockets?


Comment out the option skip-networking in the file my.cnf which typically lies under /etc or /etc/mysql. Then restart your MySQL server:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysql restart

or

/etc/init.d/mysql restart

With

netstat -ta

you can check if MySQL is reachable via TCP.
