Hey guys, I'm new to the forums here but I hope to become more active as I've recently purchased a dedicated server and I'm running Fedora off of it so it's a constant learning process, I'm fairly average at BASH, but I know enough to make my way around, I'm a software developer to trade more than a network techi. Which leads me to my initial problem, I'm having an issue starting my MySQL daemon after rebooting my dedi, I have no clue why it's suddenly doing this, I'm running PHPMyAdmin from the server and also issuing certain commands through the CLI for MySQL, but after rebooting I'm getting this error everytime I try to start the instance of the daemon:
[root@ks23085 ~]# service mysqld start
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start mysqld.service
[root@ks23085 ~]# systemctl mysqld start
Unknown operation mysqld
[root@ks23085 ~]# systemctl start mysqld
Failed to issue method call: Unit name mysqld is not valid.
[root@ks23085 ~]# systemctl start mysqld.service
[root@ks23085 ~]# mysql
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/path/to/mysql.sock' (2)
It's completely bizarre as it was working perfectly before I rebooted it, I didn't update it or change the install, the only thing that I did do was install postfix, but I don't see why that would cause any issues with MySQL :S
I really need a hand on this one, I've tried several solutions from google with no results whatsoever. Thanks in advance guys.
