Default Roundcube Mail Can't Connect to MYSQL Database

Have installed the Roundcube package for OpenBSD 4.3 and get the following when I go to its url.

Unable to connect to the database!
Please contact your server-administrator

The database and its tables are setup and can log in locally from console with username and password specified in db.inc.php

$rcmail_config['db_dsnw'] = 'mysql://roundcube:MYPASS@localhost/roundcubemail';

Any Ideas?

Note: Imp is running fine using tcp port to connect to mysql server.

I don't use roundcube, so this is only a guess ....

You are attempting to connect to the database via a filesystem socket, rather than a TCP connection, and you are using the built-in apache in default chrooted mode.

It's only a guess, of course.


To confirm if chrooted apache with your DB configuration is the problem, stop apache and restart it with -u, per FAQ 10.16. If things suddenly work, you'll know you need to either use TCP or move your filesystem socket inside /var/www.
