CPanel phpMyadmin MySQL Fix

If you end up getting this error

#2002 – The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server’s socket is not correctly configured)

Then you need to do the following.

vi /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/config.inc.php

find
$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘socket’] = ”;
change to
$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘socket’] = ‘/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock’;

next line
$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘connect_type’] = ‘tcp’;

change to

$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘connect_type’] = ‘socket’;

You should be all set after that…
