The other day, I tried connecting to mysql
via the good old
>mysql -u me -p
but I got a message saying that my mysql.sock is missing
from the tmp folder. After checking the mailing list
archive, I decided (well, guessed is the more appropriate word)
that I could try to re-start the daemon:
bin/safe_mysqld --log &
But i get this error message:
The file /usr/local/mysql/libexec/mysqld doesn't exist or
is not executable
Please do a cd to the mysql installation directory and restart
this script from there as follows:
Now I'm really confused!! I tried entering a) ./bin/safe_mysqld and b) ./bin/safe_mysqld.
(thinking that the period is part of the command...) but that didn't work.
a) just gets me the same error message and b) isn't even a command! :-(
