I’ve just cloned this blog to a development version on my Macbook Pro. The Mac has Apache2 installed by default, so I just had to get mysql working.
Downloading MySQL and installing on Leopard is a breeze with the native package.
I migrated my database (dump/restore) and recreated my wordpress user, but still kept getting this error:
Error establishing a database connection
The user could log into the database from the console as shown:
[email protected]:~ $ mysql -u wordpress -p
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 19
Server version: 5.1.34 MySQL Community Server (GPL)
Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.
mysql> use wordpress;
Reading table information for completion of table and column names
You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A
mysql> show tables;
| Tables_in_wordpress |
| sk2_blacklist |
So what is the problem?
Google provides an answer, with a log lived post from My Macinations providing the solution. It’s all to do with correcting your php.ini with the proper MySQL socket location.
Now, back to testing my new version of the Twitter Tags wordpress plugin. #hashtags now work!
Seeing as it is International WordPress Day, I’ve written a new WordPress plugin that auto links a twitter at username (like @lantrix) in a post automatically.
Developed initally on WordPress 2.3, it has successfully been tested on WordPress 2.7.1.
Most of the other plugins out there either did this only in their “badge” or “widget” or where too full featured. This is a simple and quick plugin to get links in place to twitter people for the lazy blogger.
Visit my plugin page, give it a try and let me know what you think.
It looks like I may have successfully written an alpha “migrator plug-in” that may work for migrating your com_google_maps component from Joomla 1.0.x to 1.5.
Once I have tested this on the internal testbed migration sites for one of my customers, I will write it up here. This will be useful since the developer of the Google Maps API for joomla has no current migration plugins.
