Install: Database-Server needs to stay emtpy!


i’m running my server in a vserver environment. These means localhost/ are bound to some other engine and mysql can’t connect to this because no service is listening there.
This is normaly no issue - as if you leave it blanc - it uses sockets.

In the piwik installation i am forced to enter a value for database-server - how can i overrule this check?

For host, enter the socket path, e.g., /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock


Thanks - works like a charm.
