Victor:
 
Try this:
vi  /etc/init.d/mysqld
And set the chkconfig line to:
# chkconfig: 235 64 36
 
chkconfig --add mysqld
chkconfig --level 235 mysqld on
/etc/init.d/mysqld start

Subject: [CentOS] MySQL installation problem


Hi;
It's been a while since I controlled my own server and I'm rusty. Trying to
install mysql
yum install mysql
All looks well. Here's what happens:

[root at 13gems www]# mysql
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
[root at 13gems www]# mysql -u root -p
Enter password:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

There's no mysqld in the ps wax. Please advise.
