Perhaps mysqld isn't running?

Assuming it is, perhaps you're on a system that uses MIT-pthreads, which
doesn't support UNIX domain sockets.  Try shutting down mysqld using
"mysqladmin -h hostname -u root -p shutdown", where "hostname" is the
name of your host, to use a TCP/IP connection explicitly.  ("-p" with
no password immediately following will cause mysqladmin to prompt you
for the root password.)
