I have the following error, but when I try to find the socket file there is in fact nothing
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2 "No such file or directory")
I have MariaDb on a ubuntu 18.04 How can I add this socket? I used to work with mysql but I am a bit lost with MariaDb as they replicated config everywhere
nothing related to mysql / mariadb here
