Hi. I have a page that displays information using php and mysql. The page is:

In chrome (Version 23.0.1271.95 m) I get this error:

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (11) in /home/teachi19/public_html/includes/connection.php on line 5
Database connection failed: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (11)

The strange thing is, I don't get this error in explorer or firefox. Any ideas what's going one?

Many thanks for you help,

Thank you for your question dbowes!

Usually when one browser works and another does not, its due to a bad page being cached in the browser. Please try clearing your browser cache to see if this resolves the problem.
