    I read the other phpBB threads, but it seems like those problems aren't centered around the database issue, as well as that install bug hasn't been fixed yet.

    I just updated to the latest cpanel to see if this would fix it:

    When i go directly to the phpBB, I get

    phpBB : Critical Error

    Could not connect to the database

    Also, I have checked my system and the databases are running fine, but in the cpanel screen I get this error in the database section:
    DBI connect('mysql:localhost','root',...) failed: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/ line 42 ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) 0 / unlimited

    I have restarted mysql, etc and I can't think of any more options to try ... any suggestions? Support Ticket Number: 21551
