Software :: Connecting To Mysql Database - Can't Connect To Local MySQL Server Through Socket
Aug 25, 2010
I'm having problems connecting to the mysql database on my system. I first noticed this when I was trying to set up the program anymeal. I subsequently tried using MySQL Administrator (mysql-admin), but had no luck. It gives my the following feedback:
Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
Click the 'Ping' button to see if there is a networking problem. I press the ping button, and it seems to connect.
I think this goes here, but I'm not sure. I decided that XAMPP had been troublesome enough. MySQL never worked. So I decided to instal the LAMP stack offered by YaST. I went about installing it thinking that it would all work. But it seems that I was wrong. So I try to start mysql, and here's what I get:
Code: the-matrix:~ # mysql start ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) or Code: the-matrix:~ # rcmysql start Starting service MySQL warning: /var/mysql/mysql.sock didn't appear within 30 seconds chmod: cannot access `/var/run/mysql/mysqld.pid': No such file or directory
I wrote a code in C to connect to MySQL by using mysql_real_connect function but I recieved error "Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)" (by using mysql_error function).
I also did the following things: in mysql I typed 'SHOW VARIABLES LIKE '%SOCKET%'', it returned /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock I typed 'mysql_config --socket' in shell, it returned /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock I modified /etc/my.cnf file
I am getting the following error when starting mysql using 'sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start':
Mar 15 16:33:56 MoodFishDev /etc/init.d/mysql: 0 processes alive and '/usr/bin/mysqladmin --defaults-file=/etc/mysql/debian.cnf ping' resulted in Mar 15 16:33:56 MoodFishDev /etc/init.d/mysql: ^G/usr/bin/mysqladmin: connect to
I'm using fedora 13(x86_64).i got an error message while starting the mysql database software through the kernel.

I some how installed mysql-5.1.46 (I believe I have installed) When I start mysql I am getting error: [root@501 ~]# mysql ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)
Then when I restart: [root@501 ~]# /etc/init.d/mysql restart ERROR! MySQL manager or server PID file could not be found! Starting MySQL. ERROR! Manager of pid-file quit without updating file.
Then I tried to safe start mysql : [root@501 ~]# mysqld_safe 100426 21:36:49 mysqld_safe Logging to '/usr/local/mysql/data/501.training.com.err'. 100426 21:36:49 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /usr/local/mysql/data 100426 21:36:49 mysqld_safe mysqld from pid file /usr/local/mysql/data/501.training.com.pid ended .....
when i tried the command mysql -u root it is giving me an error that "Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock'(2)" although my mysql server is ruuning beacuse i m using XAMMP server and its inbuild mysql server is running i cannot use service mysqld start command beacuse this command try to start another instance of mysql and i required mysql of XAMMP.
I've tried /etc/init.d/mysql start, and it actually starts, or at least, it doesn't error out. But when I do pgrep mysql I get nothing, and when I try to login with mysql -p as root, I get
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
None of my other logins work, either, but since pgrep mysql didn't work, it's clear that MySQL just isn't running. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling mysql-server via apt-get, but I get the same thing. The logs in /var/log/syslog show this:
Apr 11 14:31:26 /etc/init.d/mysql: #007/usr/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed Apr 11 14:31:26 /etc/init.d/mysql: error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server
I have installed the mysql server on my ubuntu. I need to assign or reset the root password. I followed the article at http://www.ubuntugeek.com/reset-the-...-on-mysql.html. When I ran the command
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) what am i doing wrong, and explain to someone who almost has no experience with ubuntu. I am new to this.
After the upgrade from 8.10 to 9.04, all was well. But after the upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10, I lost the MySQL server. Now, I recall during the upgrade, I was asked if I wanted to keep the existing my.cnf file or replace it with a newer one. I did as suggested and kept the original as I had edited it before. The same question was asked with a couple other config files. I kept the original in each case. After the first step, I checked the server was running and the websites were up, all was well. After the update to 9.10, when I checked the server, I get the following error:
Code: error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)' Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' exists! Can anyone point me in the right direction to getting this resolved?

I'm the lead Dev of GnackTrack and we're having issues with running MySQL on the LiveDVD.Once installed everything works fine, mysql can be connected to but when using the liveDVD we get the following error:
root@root:~# mysql ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) Contents of /etc/mysql/my.cf point to /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock but because this is a liveDVD the actual file is located in: /rofs/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2). I've had this problem to the point where I thought I messed up my actual configuration so bad that I reinstalled Ubuntu to get rid of all the MySQL configuration; I ran MySQL through Windows with a breeze, but I'm getting some errors like that after restarting my computer just a few minutes ago and I have not changed anything in my SQL settings. I'm on Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit and running MySQL 5.1. the actual error that I get from Navicat and from the website is at [URL]... Update: 20110402. Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed. Just got that when I tried to log in to phpmyadmin.
Well i have got a problem with connecting to a mysql database using php. I used this package "mysql-noinstall-5.1.44-win32.zip" and extracted it to c:mysql and added c:mysqlin to the PATH variable and used the following command in command prompt to start mysql: c:mysqlinmysqld --standalone
well mysql did start and everything went well accessing mysql in command prompt. Well under the database "mysql" in the table "user" i created a new user "php" with a password="****" and hostname = "localhost" but when i try to access this database with a following php routine:
And when i accesses it with my browser using localtost/test.php, all i get is "localhost" displayed on screen, "Connected to mysql" never gets displayed not i get any error..i am using windows 7(32-bit-ultimate)and mysql 5.1.44.
I've setup a CentOS apache web server, and loaded a site onto it. The site previously was functioning under windows xp (before I "stepped in") and wamp. What I did was copy the site in /var/www, reconfigure the httpd.conf (DocumentRoot /var/www/site, etc). Although when I try to open the webpage I get this error: Database Error: Unable to connect to the database:The MySQL adapter "mysql" is not available.
We are hoping to build a central database server so that we can take all the singular instances of mysql off our web servers and have the data stored in one place (we also run a number of syslogging servers that use mysql, netflow servers that use mysql, and many other servers that have mysql tables that we would like to consolidate as well). Now I have run into the problem that requires all the customer web sites to change the configuration for their connection to the mysql server from a local connection to a remote connection, which is something we are trying to avoid. I am wondering if there is a software suite or a function of mysql itself that allows you to present the remote database information as local databases to a server, allowing customer configurations to remain intact, as if the mysql server never moved off the local machine? Or a different question, can you configure mysql server to take local requests and forward them to a central mysql server?
I've downloaded and installed MySQL-client-5.1.53-1.glibc23.x86_64.rpm. I'm rather new to linux so it might be I haven't started the server. Unfortunately I have no idea which file is responsible for that. It is also possible that my head isn't functioning correctly ( if at all ).
Error I receive is:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
