Response to: mysql socket problem solved.. OSX10.4

The reason you must not use /tmp/mysql.sock is that any Tom, Dick or Other can simply delete it and bring your php-mysql system down.

The fix is actually simple:
sudo mkdir -p /var/mysql
sudo chgrp mysql /var/mysql
sudo chmog g+w /var/mysql

edit/create /private/etc/my.cnf and add the line:

restart mysql

now the new php wil find the socket info in the right place, if you change php then you might need to tell that about the new secure location.
