MySQL problem - newb


not sure what needs to be modified/setup to run the mysql tool. I get this when i type it at bash:

# mysql
ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)


What did I break?

Is MySQL running at all?
ps auxw | grep mysql

If so did you modify the path where the mysql.sock was stored? To locate the file use find / -name mysql.sock


post the results here ...

I have the same problem, MySQL is running, and sock is located in : /tmp/mysql.sock

It is looking in /var/tmp/mysql.sock
