[Tutorial]PDO issue!

hello i am trying to follow the tutorial but this error keeps showing when i try to access de gii model creation:


PDO::__construct() [<a href='pdo.--construct'>pdo.--construct</a>]: [2002] Invalid argument (trying to connect via unix://)

im using xampp on linux ubuntu

this is my main file db config:


			'connectionString' =>    'mysql:host=localhost;dbname=testdrive',

			'emulatePrepare' => true,

			'username' => 'root',

			'password' => 'root',

			'charset' => 'utf8',



—i managed to solve this using the following workaround:

                   'connectionString' =>    'mysql:host=localhost;dbname=testdrive;unix_socket=/opt/lampp/var/mysql/mysql.sock',

or instead of conecting by unix it can be done if u change host=localhost for host=
