Please give me a solution for the mysql problem...
When I try to give:
mysqladmin -u root -p password 'newpasswoed'
Then asks Enter password
When I give passwd the following error have shown
error:Cann't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock (111)'
Check that mysqld is running and the socket 'var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' exists!
How can I solve this problem?
Can u pls give me a step by step procedure for the MySQL cofiguration in Linux?
If then I will be very much thankful of u.
Thanks in advance.
