[Phpmyadmin-devel] connect_type and mysqli

Hi all,

With older mysql extension, when I wanted to connect to localhost,
I was using
host = localhost
connect_type = tcp

and it made a socket connection. That's why the "tcp" default worked
most of the time.

Now with mysqli, it no longer works: I have to tell "socket" in connect_type.

Please confirm this behavior.

Also, looking at the php manual for both mysql and mysqli,
I wonder if we should keep the connect_type parameter.
