phpmyadmin can't login


I got a problem with mysql on Gentoo 2.6.9

Apache is running perfectly (on port 8000),the same for php
mysql works fine from commandline
i can login with:
Quote:
mysql -u root -p 'password'
with 'password' my actual password

but when i go to http://localhost:8000/phpmyadmin/
i fill in 'root' and my password, and there seems to be a problem, cause phpmyadmin says "wrong username or password"
and i'm sure it's correct

i changed my my.cnf to:
Quote:
bind address = *
and
Quote:
#skip-networking
plz help me out, i've been googling for a few days now, and i really can't figure it out...

Thx

Guess php is configure to search for /tmp/mysql.sock (which isn't there) so phpmyadmin won't work

What you can do is:
find / -name mysql.sock
(or you use locate, if the database is up-to-date (you can do that by using `updatedb`))

If you find any (guess it's in /var/run/mysql/mysql.sock), then you can make a link to /tmp/mysql.sock

ln -s /tmp/mysql.sock /var/run/mysql/mysql.sock (ofcourse, if it's there)

This should fix the problem
