This is the second time I setup MySql. I had a hard drive crash and re-installed. I lost
all of /usr/local. I'm using the binary version for Solaris 2.6. I've read thru all the
docs related to this error. mysqld.sock does exist and mysqld is running as seen below.
I have done nothing special beyond install instructions. One thing that is strange is it
stating domain name when doing mysqladmin -h widow version, is that normal?
Am at a stand-still. Any help would be appreciated.
widow# mysql test
ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server (2)
widow# mysqladmin -h localhost version
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed

Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock' exists!
widow# mysqladmin -h widow version
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'widow' failed
