    Trophy Points:
    Can we compare and contrast connecting to a database using tcp vs sockets?I have recently worked at solving a connectivity problem between PHP and a MySQL server.Is there a compelling reason why a managed, dedicated server environment would want to use sockets over TCP/IP?Just how widespread is using sockets to connect to a database? Thanks!
