[Serusers] Database Connection Issue

Hey All,


I've got an odd problem.  I've configured SER to talk to MySQL located on
the localhost successfully.  However, I now want to move my MySQL database
to a separate server from SER for performance reasons.


The problem is that now I've moved the database server and changed the
db_url in my ser.cfg file and SER is still looking for the local socket in


My db_url in ser.cgi looks like this:


# -- auth params --

modparam("auth_db", "calculate_ha1", yes)

modparam("auth_db", "password_column", "password")

modparam("auth_db", "db_url", "mysql://ser:heslo@db1-grv1/ser")






db1-grv1 is mapped to the mysql server IP in the /etc/hosts file.  I can
connect fine remotely using the "mysql" client tool and the user/pass above.


However, when I start SER I get the following ...


Listening on 

              my.ip.iz.her [my.ip.iz.her]:5060

Aliases: my.hst.iz.her:5060 

WARNING: no fork mode 

stateless - initializing

Maxfwd module- initializing

acc - initializing

 0(28939) connect_db(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)

 0(28939) mod_init(): Error while connecting database

 0(28939) init_mod(): Error while initializing module usrloc

ERROR: error while initializing modules 


Any suggestions?  Is my syntax for the "db_url" parameter correct?  


Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
