I have searched for information about this, but I can't seem to find the answer to my problem...
msyqld is running, however, mysql.sock is missing.
I am unsure how to get mysql working again... I initially was having too many connections with mysql and restarted. It stopped, but never seemed to start. Like I said, it shows it is running, but I can't connect because:
ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock'
This is the location specified in the my.cnf file, and everything was working fine before. I'm not sure what to try.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
