I cannot find mysql.sock file

Postby bblaire » 26. June 2015 20:33

Hi,

I am attempting to link my socket file to for drush installation. The file is not in var/mysql/mysql.sock.

I have typed this command in terminal:

ps -ax|grep mysql and this is what came up:

19733 ?? 0:00.06 /bin/sh /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/bin/mysqld_safe --datadir=/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/var/mysql --pid-file=/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/var/mysql/Blaire-Bostons-MacBook-Pro.local.pid
20101 ?? 0:00.82 /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/sbin/mysqld --basedir=/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles --datadir=/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/var/mysql --plugin-dir=/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/lib/mysql/plugin/ --user=mysql --log-error=/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/var/mysql/Blaire-Bostons-MacBook-Pro.local.err --pid-file=/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/var/mysql/Blaire-Bostons-MacBook-Pro.local.pid --socket=/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/var/mysql/mysql.sock --port=3306
24532 ttys000 0:00.00 grep mysql

What does this mean, and how do I get my mysql.socket file?

Did you read the output before posting it here?

I see, thanks. I am new to this. I do have another question relating to my problem. I found mysql.sock in terminal, it's hidden in finder.
