Many, many thanks to Marco, which told me by mail:


it's not too vague: it just states that you can't connect to mysql :-)

your problem is that mysqld doesn't listen on the tcp/ip port but uses
only unix domain socket. this is the debian default policy for mysql,
you have to allow tcp/ip conncetion for mysql in order to use myslqnet
provide because since it uses only tcp/ip sockets.
go to /etc/mysql/my.cnf and comment out the line skip-networking, this
should solve your problem


Damn, I would never have found it out by myself. 

I believe someone should update the page


with this information. It would have spared my one whole day of

grazie di cuore. :-)
