I've been struggling with this issue for a really long time. Can someone please advise me on how to get mysql working?
root@me:~# start mysql start: Job is already running: mysql root@me:~# mysql ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
What boggles the mind is that it shows no mysql processes being run even though the above bash says otherwise.
~# ps -ef | grep mysql root 8968 1631 0 15:24 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto mysql
