Mysql will not start ERROR 2002 (HY000):


Guys,

I have installed mysql 5.0.77 on my Centos 5.3 virtual machine but I am unable to start or connect to mysql. I am getting this error:
=
[root@localhost ~]# mysql
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
=

This is what I have tried:
==
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep mysql
mysql-5.0.77-4.el5_4.1
[root@localhost ~]# netstat -antpe | grep mysql
[root@localhost ~]# service mysqld restart
mysqld: unrecognized service
==

I am unable to find mysql.sock file any where on the entire machine.

I have tried removing and reinstalling and that didnt helped either.

Any ideas fellows???

Problem fixed

Hey guys as the name says it all drstupid, silly and stupid is my style.

I did not actually installed the mysql-server and only installed mysql, as soon as I installed mysql-server ; it started working :P

yum install mysql-server

I am so dumb that if you will read guinness book UPSIDE DOWN my name will be at the top.
