Subject Re: Problems connecting to MySql database.
Date Tue, 24 Aug 2004 15:38:50 GMT
May not be always the case, but here's what we've found with people 
using OpenSIMS, which is using Torque.

Default install for MySQL via some Linux package managers (I'm thinking 
of Debian in particular but not Fedora or Gentoo) will setup your MySQL 
server to use "Unix socket" style connections.

The "torque/database/mysql" template lists connection URLs based on on 
having a TCP listener for MySQL.

When we mix both MySQL and Torque "straight out of the box" on some 
distros, we see that kind of error.  Maybe we're not handling that 
correctly on the Torque config side?

It's possible that the mysql prompt ("console") or "phpmyadmin" is 
configured to use Unix socket connections, in which case those work 
fine, but JDBC won't be able to connect.  We've seen that.

When one does enable the TCP listener for MySQL, another customer 
support issue concerns the problem where MySQL re-maps user names using 
the domain name, e.g.

	torque.defaults.connection.user = "foo"

... however, when attempting a JDBC connection, an improperly 
configured MySQL server may map that to:

	torque.defaults.connection.user = "foo@localhost"

... in which case the Torque access will fail.

At that point, MySQL config can be fixed, or the connection URL can be 
changed to something like:


Not sure how SuSE stacks up against Fedora, RedHat, Gentoo, or Debian, 
in regard to its default install of MySQL, if that's actually the issue 
you're seeing.
