I have just installed mysql, and I've got

  1. mysql -u root
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)

Thanks to the wiki i've done:

General MySQL Connectivity

Check /var/run/mysqld for mysqld.sock and /tmp for mysql.sock. If mysql.sock doesn't exist, create a softlink:

  1. ln -s /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock /tmp/mysql.sock

Then restart the daemon:

  1. /etc/rc.d/mysqld restart

But should the mysql package do this?

is this a typo?

  1. Use for PHP 5.x:

AddHandler php5-script php


AddHandler php5-script .php
