Cant connect to Mysql


Oh

Now I cannot connect to mysql on RHEL

I try:mysql --user=myuser--password=mydbpass mysql

and i get:

Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock'

Sorry I have done this many times before but cannot get in on this server. If I
mysqladmin -u root -p status, it states:

Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' exists!

Cheers and sorry

PS /var/lib/mysql does not exist on my box

Is this a new installation?

Did you, as root, run
Code:
su -
<root password>
mysql_install_db --user=mysql
