Hello, I have problems to connect to my mysql database with dbase. I upgraded from OpenSuse 12.3 to 13.1. Everything worked fine in OpenSuse 12.3. Now I use libreoffice 188.8.131.52. I can connect to my database with other programs like the mysql client or the Perl DBD module. To connect to the mysqld server I use a socket. The database wizard of base seems fine with using a socket. After I set everything up in the wizard, I klicked the test button in the wizard and base says that a connection could be made. Once I am out of the wizard I get the error “Can’t connect to MySql server on 127.0.0.1 (111)”. Why does it say that? I told it to use a socket (which worked in opensuse 12.3 and with that version of libreoffice).
In the configuration of the mysqld server I use the lines
When I don’t use “skip_networking” everything works fine with base. I can connect to the mysqld server with base. But I don’t want to use networking since I think it is a security risk. And I only use the database locally on my machine.
This could be a bug, or am I missing something?
Thanks for your help.
