I am trying to install MySQL on my CLIMB volume. Everything seems to go ok until I tryu to start MySQL, whereupon I get this error
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
I have tried numerous ways to install MySQL (LinuxBrew, through Deb, and Docker) and it always comes back to this error when I try to start the database. When I look in var/run/ the ‘mysqld’ doesn’t exist, and neither is it in any of the other mysql directories installed on the system in bin, lib or etc.
I’m probably missing something here, so any advice would be hugely appreciated please!
