Importing Bugzilla data when it uses a Unix socket rather than a TCP Port

Subject says most of it...

It looks like our Bugzilla set up uses a Unix socket (/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock) rather than a tcp port, so the importer doesn't even start. Is there a workaround?

You can probably temporary switch the mode to the TCP connection during the importing procedure :

as importer plugin currently not supported for the Unix socket connection.

Yilin,

I switched it as suggested, and the import worked just fine!

Thank you.

Paul
