    33I want to use turbo gears, but my machine is setup with mysql not bound to a network socket and I get the following errors when I try to connect: _mysql_exceptions.OperationalError?: (2002, "Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)");

    77There is a practice of not binding MySQL to an ip address and port following the principle that "if you're not connected, you are protected." In this situation, the server has a socket file. By default TurboGears (or SQLObject and the python MySQL driver/client to be more exact) will look for the socket file in /tmp/mysql.sock. Many installations seem to use /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock. Therefore, to get TurboGears to work, you'll need to specify the unix_socket (if on unix) param in the dburi.
