MySQL / Databases.cfg

Post by Ounces » Tue Jul 25, 2017 9:21 pm

I am working with a plugin that requires a database to be defined within the databases.cfg & I have made sure that the keyvalues are correct. The issue is that during startup I get the following error:

[SM] Exception reported: Timer startup failed. Reason: [2002]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)

So my main question is whether or not Gameservers supports MySQL within CSS servers (locally via the same machine) & if not how does one go along with getting the processing a refund.

Unfortunately we do not provide local database access for our game servers, though you are free to remotely access any database.

If you wish to process a refund, please submit a Refund Request via the Support section of your Control Panel at
