I have a fresh Joomla installation in a Mac OS X and I have configured a database to connect the application to. By default, Joomla uses
localhost to connect (variable
$host), but it does not work.
However, if I replace
127.0.0.1 it does connect. I have installed MySQL using MacPorts.
It seems this is the opposite problem asked in another question.
What can I do to be able to use localhost instead of plain IP?
Here is my
## # Host Database # # localhost is used to configure the loopback interface # when the system is booting. Do not change this entry. ## 127.0.0.1 localhost 255.255.255.255 broadcasthost ::1 localhost fe80::1%lo0 localhost
