I restored my Magento site from yesterdays Digital Ocean backup and now can't connect to database. Does anyone have any ideas on fix?

when trying to connect to mysql database while in Putty, I get the following: ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’ (111)
