Here's the log. Not clear for me what's wrong.
dovecot: Feb 05 17:39:37 Error: auth(default): mysql: Missing value in connect
dovecot: Feb 05 17:39:37 Error: Auth process died too early - shutting down
dovecot: Feb 05 17:39:37 Error: child 16642 (auth) returned error 89
and here the dovecot-sql.conf
driver = mysql
connect = host=/var/www/htdocs/local/sql/mysql.sock dbname=mail user=user
password='the password is a sentence wright here'
default_pass_scheme = MD5-CRYPT
password_query = SELECT pass FROM users WHERE userid = '%u'
user_query = SELECT home, uid, gid FROM users WHERE userid = '%u'
#user_query = SELECT maildir, 10000 AS uid, 10000 AS gid FROM mbox WHERE user
