In addition to the mysql, quick solution question:
the error is literally:
ERROR 2002 [HY000]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (61) I thought that the server would create the mysql.sock file when it started if it didn't exist so as
root I removed it.
I received the same error as above accept for (2) on the end rather than (61); I thought back to linux use days and vaguely remembered having a similar problem
and never did find out how the mysql.sock file is created.
Impatience won over laziness and I did read the O'Reilly MySQL Reference Manual and it did say lots about protecting the mysql.sock file but not how to recreate it if it
has been eliminated. I guess that's the essence of my original question:
How do you recreate the mysql.sock file if it has been eliminated or in this case
corrupted by a system power failure.
