I have been trying to install MySQL on Ubuntu 10.10 and just can't get it to work. I installed it by running
sudo apt-get install mysql-server and once that was done, when I try
mysql I get the message:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
mysql start and get the same thing. I am sure I am doing something wrong, any pointers would be great.
