I need to use authentication with and mysql_sock.

Setting used in Apache config:

RedmineDSN "DBI:mysql:database=xxx;mysql_socket=/tmp/proxysql.sock"
RedmineDbUser "user"

Apache error.log message:

DBI connect('database=XXX;mysql_socket=/tmp/proxysql.sock','user',...) failed: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/proxysql.sock' (2) at /usr/share/perl5/Apache/ line 557.

My own little perl-script with same options und also using DBI is functional via socket also the redmine database config with sock works.
