I've recently been trying to setup mysql/php/apache, which i've already accomplished a few times a little while back. Anyway, i've got apache to work with php without any problems but mysql is the problem.
I tried to install mysql, but it doesn't seem to be working.
i get an error:
ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (111)
I've searched through a few sites with that error, but their sollutions don't seem to help very much.
Here is a little bit of information.
linux version - red hat 7.2
Here's the instructions i used to install mysql -
useradd -g mysql mysql
tar xvf mysql-3.23.51.tar
chown -R root /usr/local/mysql
chown -R mysql /usr/local/mysql/var
chgrp -R mysql /usr/local/mysql
Can anybody help me sort this problem out?
