if you have trouble and can't login because of a lost or unknown password for the root then you have to stop the mysql server by killing it or if you are using mandrake like I am and the mysql server started up at a boot time then you have to kill mysql in the mandrake control center then restart mysql like so:
then you will be able to set a new password for root.
ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
I am now getting the above error. I'm new to linux. Steps to produce this error
1. went to /etc/init.d
2. then I mysql start
Please tell me what I'm doing wrong. I spoke to someone on Friday who told me these were the correct steps, however , I 'm getting the above error. Whe I first installed mysql I was able to get mysql prompt, now I'm not. I checked to see if the process is running and it says that it is running under root. Also when I checked the init.d directory, I see mysqld. Should I start mysqld?
Are there any good references out there that I might purchase? Mysql cookbook is not very helpful.
check whether ur mysql service is running by listing the process
is supposed to be present in ur konsole.just type safe+TAB u'll see the options if there is nothing then u have to think abt reinstallation of mysql.
