I am using Windows 10. Via Devilbox, I am able to set up and verify virtual hosts for test projects. All is green on the Devilbox console.
The only difficulty I found in setup was that I was unable to get Devilbox working with Windows-style containers. So I am using Linux-style Docker containers on Windows.
PHPMyAdmin runs with no problem. However, when I enter the PHP container and run the “mysql” command-line program, I see this error:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’ (2 “No such file or directory”)
And indeed, when I examine “/var/run,” I do not find the “mysqld” directory.
Is this a feature, a bug, or a case of (my) new-user ignorance? If possibly a bug, what additional information should I provide on GitHub?
Sorry to have bothered about this. I found my answer in the documentation here:
May suggest adding to the GETTING STARTED documentation so as to direct the new user to the above location? Seems this would fit in between GETTING STARTED items 7 and 8.
