mysql instalation problem
ok this is the story I have been trying to set up a mysql server on my computer. I am running mandrake linux 9.1 and I have installed mysql and when I try and set the password i get an error of : 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket 'var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' '(2) Check that mysqld is running and the socket: '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' exist!
I have been trying many differnt things trying to get this to work when I go to the folder that mysql.sock is to be in and it is not there!
if I could get some help that would be so cool!
