I'm trying to get mysql working and it's throwing back problems that I can't seem to find the answer to.
I've installed the mysql-server and left the default settings in the 'my.cnf' file.
**(I've changed the local host to my own ip address and no change)
When I pass 'mysql -u root' if get:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (13)
**(I've changed the files to /tmp/mysql/mysql.sock and I get the same message)
I've checked if mysql is running with:
'ps -ef | grep mysql'
mysql 4347 1 0 21:22 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/mysqld
matt 4635 2921 0 21:24 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --colour=auto mysql
'service mysql status'
mysql start/running, process 4347
...So I think that it is.
Thanks in advance!
