MySQL problem (can't connect)

Postby Zeno McDohl » 10. December 2006 19:31

I'm trying to connect to mysql via command prompt but always get this error no matter what:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

This is basically a new version of XAMPP that I recently installed and haven't changed anything. Suggestions?

I can't even start it up now:
061210 14:11:00 [Warning] Can't create test file /var/lib/mysql/zenorebirth.lower-test
/usr/libexec/mysqld: Can't change dir to '/var/lib/mysql/' (Errcode: 13)
061210 14:11:00 [ERROR] Aborting

061210 14:11:00 [Note] /usr/libexec/mysqld: Shutdown complete
