Cant connect to mysql -error 2002
your mysql server is NOT running...
at the promp do...
[linux~]$ su -
[root]$ service mysqld restart
Stopping mysql [FAILED}
Starting mysql [ OK ]
[rrot]$ try logging in again.
If it works now check you bootup
[root]$ chkconfig --list mysqld
mysqld 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
[root]$ chkconfig --add mysqld
Reboot and check again.
