mysql error Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.
I have been researching without any luck about this problem. I have read many solutions to this problem but they did not work for me.
Problem: I am getting the following error when I try to run mysql.
Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
1- Please note that I am running as root.
2- I am using Mandrivia 2005 limited edition (I selected mysql when I installed my OS)
3- I do not find neither mysql directory under var/lib not mysql.sock
Any help from the OSC (open source community) will be appreciated.
chown mysql.mysql <directory>
I installed Red Hat Linux 3 in my system which had given Apache, PHP and mysql 3 by default. But, when I tried to give the command '#mysqld' it has given some socket error(mysql.sock). What I did is, I downloaded mysql 5.0 RPM's from the site 'mysql.com' and installed it. And now, when I tried to connect to server, using '#mysqld', the error I got is:
"[ERROR] Fatal error: Please read "Security" section of the manual to find out how to run mysqld as root!"
And when I type the following command,
#rpm -q mysql-server
package mysql-server is not installed.
if I try to reinstall using mysql server rpm,
it says that the package is already installed.
Can somebody please help in solving this problem.
I am new to Linux Environment.
Please suggest me to sort out this problem.
If at all repairing this problem is not possible, can somebody suggest how to uninstall mysql, so that I can try it out once again by installing.
Hi, your question is different from what the original poster was asking, its probably better to start your own thread so that it get more exposure.
