    Have you made sure that httpd (apache) is running? Check in mandrake control centre - services or somewhere like that.

    I have a question too. I've installed MySQL from rpm package in Mandrake 10.0 . When I run command #mysql it returns "cannot connect to the host by the socket at '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock'.
    What I can do now to get it work?
    Thanks for reading and helps.
