so i have a server running and I want to be able to make some mysql databases. It is a fedora core 3 box. I included the mysql package when I installed and all of the mysql directories and executables seem to be on the machine.
Is there something particular I need to do (ie. open ports specific to mysql?). When I ssh into the server and run mysql in the terminal an error comes up saying:
error 2002: cant connect to mysql through socket "/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock" (2)
Anyone ever have similar problems or know what it is I need to do?
