error message when trying to use mysql
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 03, '01 11:27:01AM

I installed the latest version using the above tips, including installing the static zlib.
It seemed to configure and install just fine (though I'm a Unix newbie), but when I try to run mysql from the command line, I get the following error:

ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)

I have NO idea what to do. Any ideas?

Okay, I'm a newbie. I didn't have my mysqld running. Urp. I've since delved deeply into the MySQL docs and learned quite a bit about MySQL, though I still have lightyears to go.
