Hi everyone. How can I obtain the direct path to my database? For example what I type into my server location is 'localhost'. I would like to change it to my actual database path. I'm on Absolut (starka)
localhost is the most specific thing to use. Using anything else will probably not work.
Technical reason for those wondering: If you attempt to connect to MySQL using an IP address, it will use the network TCP/IP stack to communicate, whereas if you specify exactly "localhost" it will use a unix socket file instead. If the servers are configured to disable network connections (haven't checked, but it is a possibility), that means using an IP (even 127.0.0.1) will fail to connect, whereas using "localhost" will work properly.
