Zimbra MySql connection using MySql Clients

Zimbra uses MySql database and when you try to connect to mysql under zimbra user with following details, it might throw access errors.

user : zimbra
password : [no password]
host: localhost  ( or wherever you have installed the zimbra)

Also , if you already have your own mysql installed before ,  it might conflict for the mysql clients like CocoaMySQL.  To make it work you need to specify the right socket path. Specify 


Once you specify above socket it exactly knows what mysql db to connect to. You can make this work for phpMyAdmin or any other MySQL clients.
