In the past I had installed MySQL as part of XAMPP in
/Applications/XAMPP/ and the PHP that the system used (e.g. from command line) used
/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/var/mysql/mysql.sock to connect with MySQL.
Now I have installed MySQL 5 with macports and I want my system PHP to be able to use that. I think I must set PHP to use
/opt/local/var/run/mysql5/mysqld.sock but where do I set this? Is there a
php.ini for CLI PHP?
