MySQL connection error on "host" when db service has been disabled?


I’ve been getting the following mySQL connection error email since the recent update,

Can’t connect to MySQL localhost
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’ (2)

I am only using hestia as a dedicated web and didn’t install MySQL/MariaDB, hence which is normally fine can’t connect to local.

I didn’t get the error email when the instance was first setup (over 18 months ago) but seems like something has triggered the db check & email?

Would be great if anyone can let me know how to disable the check


Delete the existing database config for localhost with

v-delete-database-host mysql localhost
