Please forgive me. I have searched all over for help with this problem
to no avail. I have just installed from RPM mysql 3.23.22-6 on a RedHat
7.0 system. I keep getting the message mysqladmin: cannot connect to
server at 'localhost' failed
error; Can't connect to local MySql server through socket
check that mysqld is running and that socket: /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
I am using the command: mysqladmin -u root password 'newpassword'
Mysqld is running and the file mysql.sock exists.
I am new to this. Any help appreciated.
