where is config.inc.php?

It looks like my PHP is working but when I try to connect to mysql using phpMyAdmin I get this error:

#2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)
I googled around for solutions and most of the involve changing settings in the config.inc.php file. Problem is I can't seem to find it..

I had downloaded and installed the php5 source (with the mysql option) and I understand that OS X 10.4.6 has it installed (on an Intel Macbook) but spotlight can't find the file..

Do I have to download an example from somewhere? If so, where should I put it? I figured it would go in /etc/php but I don't seem to have that directory in my OS X.

It is in the top level of the phpMyAdmin folder (or whatever you renamed the folder to).

That's actually the first or second place I looked but it's not there:

wayfinder:/Library/WebServer/Documents/phpmyadmin root# ls *.inc.php
ls: *.inc.php: No such file or directory

wayfinder:/Library/WebServer/Documents/phpmyadmin root# ls config*.*
ls: config*.*: No such file or directory

Did I just download a bad version of phpmyadmin? I got it directly from the project site this morning (v2.8.0.3)

Can you just run the ls command while in there so we can see what files are in that folder?

Must be something with v2.8.0.3 because a config.default.inc file comes with the v2.7. Had to modify a few things there (change localhost to, use /tmp/mysql.sock for the socket, and fill in the absolute url info) but then it works.
