Upgrading from Mysql5.1 to Mysql5.5
 
Hello All,
I am the newbie of linux user, can anyone guide me that how to upgrade from mysql5.1 to mysql5.5 version. Pls guide me in briefly.
I did upgrade with the help of this url http://www.ovaistariq.net/490/a-step...-to-mysql-5-5/ but i got error like this
error:2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) when trying to connect
FATAL ERROR: Upgrade failed

In /etc/my.cnf , i didnt get like this. Is this is the error
user = mysql; socket = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock; port = 3306; basedir = /usr/local/mysql; datadir = /usr/local/mysql/data; tmpdir = /tmp; log_error = /var/log/mysql/error.log

Thanks

?????
why are you not using your package manager ??
also some very basic info would help .

1) what is the OS ???
2) what VERSION of this unnamed OS is this ?

the operating system is very critical to know that will inform us as to just how you should install 5.5 ( if you can)
