ok, i just switched my dual AMD 1.6ghz server over to Redhat 8.0 from XP. I got apache and php working, but i cant seem to get MySQL working. I get this error:
ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
i chekced and that file isint there, any ideas where it is? any help would be great.
I have got the same problem. As soon as Redhat 8 came out I downloaded and installed it on one of my servers. I couldn't connect from any other host then localhost/localmachine to the mysql server .. using mysql client from shell is working (only when using root/trusted connection).
I've posted the problem on the forum of the biggest Dutch tech site with more then 75.000 registered members. It seemed that a lot of other people had the same problem as me and you.
I've not been workin on the problem a lot of time I have just down grade the server ... but trying again right now.
Isn't this a known bug?
One of the solution i know could be done is not installing the httpd server and mysql ... and then do a separate installation.
But this will make a lot of problem.. I did a search on the redhat they specificly telling redhat user that the httpd server is patch with postgresql . but .. i though mysql is better then postgresql.
I've added a 'host permission' to mysql or let's call it a trusted host for the client machine where I was/am connecting from.
And you know what happend .. acccess was granted.
So I think that there is actually a bug in the MySQL that was coming with RedHat 8 distro
