I'm sure you've checked to see if the mysql server is running..

The socket should be owner:group mysql (or whatever user you set up to
run the mysql server).

Are you trying to access it via PHP or just the command line?

If it's PHP, you could try altering mysql.default_socket in your
php.ini to what mysql expects. Run mysqladmin and check to see where the
socket is:

mysqladmin -u root -p[password] variables

Replace [password] with your real password.

Otherwise, you can set it by altering $MYSQL_UNIX_PORT in your
safe_mysqld script, or in whatever file you're using to start mysqld, to
please PHP, but it may break other applications that depend on it being
somewhere else. Check those scripts, they're probably defining the socket 
in there somewhere.
