Created a server with centos 6 and started mysql server. After getting past a lot of stupid PHP errors, phpmyadmin says it can't connect to the mysql socket at localhost. I can telnet to the port without issue and receive a response, but the phpmyadmin service fails every time.

Note, I have disable iptables, so that's not interfering. Also, mysql is set to only allow root connections via localhost, however the phpmyadmin is coming from localhost.
