[Edit: I thought I fixed it, but shortly after it broke again]
After ~5 hours I've installed Apache
3 more hours and I've installed PHP
Had loads of problems installing both of the above but finally got them to work
Now I am trying to install MySQL on Slackware 10.
I have followed all the instructions on http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/quick-install.html
and even got this far:
root@shaggy:/usr/local/mysql# /usr/bin/mysqld_safe &
root@shaggy:/usr/local/mysql# Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /usr/local/mysql/data
I see in ps aux that it is running too, all appears well, but the problem is when I try to do step 6 of the tutorial, it says:
mysqlshow: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
It's the same error given for when I try and give the accounts that were created passwords as well
I've re-read the install guide and I don't see where I've gone wrong
I have a small network and the computer that I'm installing MySQL on is 192.168.0.3, does that make any difference?
