unix_socket support #865

The fix in #614 [991] is kludgey.

Propose moving the change to Installation/Controller.php.


(In [refs #865; revert #614 991)


(In [1311]) fixes #865 - unix_socket support


(In [1314]) refs #865 - add unix_socket to example config


(In [1315]) refs #865 - add unix_socket to sample


Note: requires ZF 1.5+


(In [1317]) refs #865 - comment out unix_socket until we update ZF


(In [1367]) refs #865 - re-worked unix_socket support for Zend_Db and Tracker_Db

Installation will now accept:

  • host
  • host:port
  • host:/socket/path
  • /socket/path

Connecting to the database, Piwik will look at the unix_socket setting (if set), or a socket path in the port; else fallback to traditional host:port.


(Note: the algorithm in [1367] no longer depends on the ZF update.)
