Suddenly in the last hour or so the connection speed
between our webserver and database server has
skyrocketed to the point that our site is no longer
usable! Just trying to connection via the mysql client
takes a long time. Once the connection is established,
however, queries seem to execute in a timely fashion.
As far as we can tell the network connection between
the two boxes is fine (at least testing by ping OK)
and again, once connected everything seems fine.
We've seen some errors in our logs that state: Can't
connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock'. Why would php
mysql_connect be trying to connect to the local MySQL
Server? Our connection string should point it to the
We're using php 4.3.9 and MySQL 4.0.20.
Thanks for any help,
