This doesn't look like a problem caused by the database.

The error indicates one of two problems:

1. Interchange is actually not running (but it looks like it is from
the logs, and ps)
2. Your link program can't connect to it

So.. reasons why you wouldn't be able to connect:

1. Your permissions don't match - setting the socket permissions to
777 would prove this was the case
2. you have the wrong path compiled into your link program. (I can't
see a full path in your strings output)
3. your link program does not have permission to traverse to the socket.

Hope this helps.
