Install: Database-Server needs to stay emtpy!


#1

Hi,
i’m running my server in a vserver environment. These means localhost/127.0.0.1 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?
Thanks

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