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.
