Hello, and goodmorning .I'm using suse 10 distro 64 -bit and when i type in terminal mysql i get the message that could not connect to local host database server.It also says that couldn't find sql.sock in some path it gives me.
1.Do Ineed to install extra packages???
2.Do i need to move files to some other location ???
3.i tryied to "locate" the sql.host but it didn't find anything what should i do?
the error : "ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/
ps -ef or top both of these will show processes that are running. You do not need to create mysql.sock. When you start the service it will be created and when you stop the service mysql.sock will be destroyed.
I tryied ps -ef and i didn't found mysql service or any daemon anywere.When i typed mysql start in suse it gave me the same error : "ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/
How do i start a daemon and what packages are the standard needed for mysql????
Any opinions left ???
thank you for helping me with my problem
It's "service mysqld start" not "mysql start". What this does is uses the initialization script /etc/init.d/mysqld to start the server. Perhaps there is something that this script needs to do before the daemon can start. In any case, I'd follow jstephens84's advice and post your config file -- that "false argument" error suggests that perhaps something is wrong with it.
On my SuSE 9.3, service is in /sbin/service. Are you doing this as root? The /sbin directory should be in root's $PATH and you need to be root to start the daemon anyway. Try becoming root and typing /sbin/service mysqld start.
The config file is actually /etc/my.cnf -- at least on one of my systems.
