Me to having socket problems!!!
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 05, '01 02:46:29AM

Please help me...what is this??
The server can´t locate the mysql.sock. It´s the same what ever I do.
Phpmyadmin says the same. I really need this fixed =)...anyone...?

/usr/local/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)'
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock' exists!

This is what it says when I type ps -aux | grep mysq
root 18614 0.7 0.2 1340 232 std U+ 0:00.02 grep mysq
root 426 0.0 0.0 1720 4 std- S 0:00.10 sh ./bin/safe_mysqld
root 437 0.0 0.0 11680 4 std- S 0:00.29 /users/knasen/desktop/mysql-3.2

I actually can´t say what the problem is...tried type "mysql" but the problem stays. Tried Phpmyadmin...and the same appears...When I open etc/ I can´t see any file named: mysql.sock.

This is what it says when I type safe_mysqld &
[localhost:/usr/local/bin] root# safe_mysqld
Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /usr/local/var
010404 21:13:05 mysqld endedn

[2] + Exit 1 safe_mysqladmin

Mine initially worked fine until I restarted and logged in under a different user
other than root. Now I have the same problem.
