im a very newbie that got really badly stuck with this mysql.sock.....
so, i'm workin on a redhat 9....and i'm trying to set up ACID on snort.....usin mysql
all installation went fine, but when i try:
i get an error:
ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MYSQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock'
I can't find this mysql.sock
(neither find / nor locate worked)
looked for a while on the web, & tried all the different options proposed:
change /tmp/ to /var/lib/mysql/
what am i supposed to so it work....
& when using the apache server to connect acid....guess what, i get the same error
