i have a major issue so i came to the pros. I installed a client rpm version of mysql on my box from mysql.com.
Now yesterday I started mysql by:
mysql -h localhost -u root -p XXXXX everything worked fine untill i tried installing mysql on a new machine. now i get this error
Error 2002: cant connect to local mysql server through socket /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
Now i cant find mysql on my machine at all. i installed the rpm and webt through successfully ,very stange. Cant find a directory called mysql????
Very stressed about this
