How to set SQL to UNIX socket
I have recently installed MySQL on my nix box and wanted SQL to run on a UNIX socket.
so i did ./configure --prefix= ..........--with-unix-socket-path=/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock .....
then a make and make install
but now when i start mysqld and do a netstat -vat ...i find that MySql is using protocol TCP ...shouldnt it be UNIX???
<newbie alert!!! > so forgive me if i sound confused
