I used the my.cnf wizard to try to fine tune my cnf, but I’ve run into an issue. If I use the generated:
socket = /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
pid-file = /var/lib/mysql/mysql.pid
I get lightning fast speeds in http, but as soon as it moved to https I get the “Unable to establish connection to database” error. If I switch it back to my old:
socket = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
pid-file = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid
it’s much slower, but https works fine. Nothing shows up in the error log in the first example. I would LOVE to keep the /var/lib socket speeds, but I need https to work on the site.
