ProcessWire Install on GoDaddy Hosting Can't Find the MySQL Database


Recommended Posts

Hello All :)  I am attempting to install my first PW site on GoDaddy hosting using GoDaddy's Web & Classic Linux hosting.  All is good with the install up to the point where I created the database. Upon entering the DB Name, User, Pass and clicking continue, I get the following PW error messages:

Database connection information did not work.
SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

Does anyone have any experience with this and know how to correct it?
