Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket in bitbucket pipelines Edited

My bitbucket-pipelines.yml file is showing a error :"_mysql_exceptions.OperationalError: (2002, "Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)")".


pipelines: default: - step: image: python:3.5.2 services: - database script: - pip install -r requirements.txt - python manage.py run_test definitions: services: database: image: mysql environment: MYSQL_DATABASE: 'pipelines' MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD: 'let_me_in'

Above is my code.Thanks in advance

The usual reasons for that error are that MySQL is not running, or it is configured with a different socket file.  Check your my.cnf for it.

I ran into this problem. For me the fix was to use '0.0.0.0' instead of 'localhost' in Django as the database HOST. The Atlassian docs clearly state to use localhost, so I believe they are wrong.

Yes, this is definitely a the fix. Maybe they are wrong in the docker network setup of the pipeline.
