Re: mysql.sock

check to see if /var/lib/mysql is there, and if the user mysql is running under (usually mysql) has the appropriate permissions to rw to it (usually I do chown -R mysql.mysql /var/lib/mysql).

I have a fresh install of Slackware 9.1. Installed Mysql with the install of
the OS. When attempting to start mysqld, I receive an error stating it can
not connect to /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock. When I searched for mysql.sock, it
is not on the system. How do I go about creating mysql.sock?
