I recently tried to learn how to set up mysql server in my Redhat 9 box. I followed a reference book demonstrating how to locate and start mysql server by typing at the shell:
>locate mysql.server ; and
However, I could not locate mysql.server and also could not use the ./mysql.server to start the server.
Can anyone tell me where on earth mysql.server is located and how to start it up?
Hi there. It really confused much!
I started, as you advised, the mysql server and as a root, typed at the shell 'mysql' and the system prompted me with the following message.
error 2002: can't connect to local mysql server through socket 'var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock'(2)!
I also followed the procedures as to how to set the password for the root but still it failed.
Can anyone please tell me what did I miss?
I did try 'mysql' without any other parameters command at the shell at first but it kept prompting me with "ERROR 1045 : Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: NO)"!
I thought I might have missed something.
I don't know if you've already been trying to set passwords and users by either way try the link below, maybe you've already seen, only difference in procedure should be you'll do
service mysqld stop
