Installation error---help needed

Postby chartxyz » Thu Jul 17, 2003 9:12 pm

I recently installed the latest version of mysql on rhat 8.0. It seems that I can start mysql server by use
mysqld_safe
However, nothing works after that. For example, when I type
mysqladmin version
It always gives the fo error:
Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)

Thanks[/quote][/b][/code]

I reinstalled rhat 8.0 and included MySQL package. Everything worked. Sorry about the previous post.

However, the binary installation did not work for rhat 8.0. I still do not understand why.

Don't Install Linux again
just do this
run this command

>service mysqld status

if it shows .. not running ..
then run this command

>service mysqld start
>service mysqld restart

then run the mysql , mysqladmin

if not work then check whether rpm is installed

> rpm -q mysql

if it show mysql...... is installed
then it is ok
