in reply to Connecting to mysql using DBI and a non-standard socket

The option is mysql_socket so you will want something like:

my $dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:mysql:database=nemo;mysql_socket=/usr/kase +nna/mysql/tmp/mysql.sock', 'nemo','password');
If it's not described in your DBD::mysql manpage then it is likely that the feature isn't supported in the version you have.

    That's the one. I was referring to the socket as socket instead of mysql_socket. Thanks.
