mySQL problems _-=SOLVED=-_
mmk.. i installed apache, php, and mysql tonight as it is told to on http://www.aboutdebian.com/internet.htm. all is well, except mysql is giving me some problems. im running debian sarge and i'm thru a linksys router connected via an ethernet cord. here are some errors im getting...
when i run 'mysql -u root'
when i run '/etc/init.d/mysql start'
ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
when i run 'mysqld'
Starting MySQL database server: mysqld...failed.
Please take a look at the syslog.
/usr/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)'
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' exists!
I'm stumped, i've checked IRC, and help is greatly appreciated.
