Be wary of Security Update 2010-005
Authored by: karog on Sep 16, '10 08:05:22AM

Another thing this update broke was the PHP-MySQL connection. For local connections, MySQL uses /tmp/mysql.sock. PHP also used this as a default but this update changed PHP's default to /var/mysql/mysql.sock. For me, this manifested in a broken mythweb reporting only a Database Error. The solution is to edit /etc/php.ini (after copying php.ini.default to php.ini if necessary) and change the mysql.sock references in three places to /tmp/mysql.sock.
