i am trying to setup and start mysql on suse 9.1, i enter yast, select the right packages install them then after that when i start the kernel and write any mysql command it saysa it can't find the mysql.sock file at /var/lib/mysql, i know i can delete the whole sock thing from the /etc/my.cnf, but i am afraid to do so, i don't know if it will make mysql work in a wrong way or not,
Well it says the same error,
cannot connect to localhost and then sumthing that has "/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock", i can't find the mysql.sock there, when i start mysqld_safe it starts but when i type any command it says the same error, and in the book i bought they said the configuration on windows only(do they think all of us use windows?),
thx daniel i will try this, well i have a wrox book about learning apache,mysql and php, it said the post installation on windows only they r windows lovers as i deduce although the things they r explaining are open source, anyway i will try this solution and i will keep u informed,
