I'm new in the community! I would like some help in an issue that is driving me crazy. I forgot my MySQL user and password, so I tried to delete MySQL, but something went wrong and now I can't start over again. I tried many times to use the command "sudo apt-get remove --purge mysql". This apparently works, as it deletes mysql server from my PC. But then, when trying to install MySQL again, this error appears
Error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
But when I go to "var/run" no "mysqld" folder exists there, so I don't know what to do! I've tried many of the solutions that appeared in other similar posts, but nothing works to me. Thank you in advance!!
