Okay, MySQL has not been working. I've posted this in one other thread, but since I'm having this apache weirdness as well I figured I'd group them into one question.
Here you can see MySQL just not working. Now that I've got more time I'll see if I can search Splunk for anything related. Any pointers on using Splunk or checking error logs would be greatly appreciated as well!

Now, the only problematic thing is that /home/www is not a real directory but a symlink itself. The real directory is /var/www/vhosts/default/htdocs. I don't think there's any issue with that, I just set it up that way so I didn't have to type all that out every time I go there.
I would post my httpd.conf file here but I'm afraid I'll get yelled at. Instead, I just hosted it at http://mcupples.com
. It's the index page.
* My issue with MySQL is the error "ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)"
* My issue with Apache is that my settings are incorrect for supporting virtual hosts.
Edit: Also, how can I change the name of my server at the bash prompt? Instead of [root@69-64-69-24 www], I'd like it to say [firstname.lastname@example.org www]. No worries about that, though!
