MySQL Error When Installing

I’m trying to install Mint but get the following error when I run the installer: “MySQL Error: Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’ (2). (2002)”. I’m hosted with Media Temple and don’t see any reason why this shouldn’t work, and as far as I know I have the database information entered correctly.

I figured it out…

What exactly was the problem? I’m having the same issue.

Can someone follow up on this I’m having the same problem as well.
