Error connection

I install sc in a Ubuntu 13.04 64bits
When I create a new project and I try to create connection to mysql db the following error occurred :
“Connection Error
No such file or directory
mysql_connect(): No such file or directory”

What is the problem here ?

No rights at _lib/conf …

Can someone elaborate on “No rights at _lib/conf …”?
New to Linux. I setup a LAMP on another server any things work perfect. Setting up SC on a clean Ubuntu poses challenges.

All examples work wit SQLlite - same connect error as above trying to use MySQL.

Looks like a nice product. Any suggestions of others which grid, form, report and chart?


To solve the problem you can edit php.ini (Netmake/v71/components/apache/conf/) and set “default-socket” to the path of “mysqld.sock” of your mysql


Work for this way. At connection SC screen Server/Host (Name or IP) change the default localhost name for ip number


We are currently running Scriptcase 6 and 7 on our hosted VPS which is running PHP 5.3. It would appear that Scriptcase 8 requires PHP 5.4.

I can email our hosting provider and ask them to upgrade our VPS to PHP 5.4, but will this break the existing Scriptcase installations?

Any info would be appreciated.


On my servers i can select the php version for each directory (and sub-dirs) via entry in .htaccess:

#Action application/x-httpd-php53 /cgi-sys/php53-fcgi-starter.fcgi
#AddType application/x-httpd-php53 .php .php5 .php53

Action application/x-httpd-php54 /cgi-sys/php54-fcgi-starter.fcgi
AddType application/x-httpd-php54 .php .php5 .php54

If that is possible in your server then you can run SC in version 6, 7 and 8 on the same server.
