I installed using the src files.
I untarred, etc.
then from /usr/local/bin
I did sh mysql_install_db
then when I did
I got the following error message:
mysqladmin: connect to server at localhost failed
error can't connect to local MySQL server (2)
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: /var/lib/mysql/mysqlsock
well I checked and the mysqlsock file doesn't exist.
What went wrong?
This is my second install, the first was using the LINUX rpm, and it
installed to /usr/bin
This install went to /usr/local/bin
Thank you for listening,
