I have mysql installed and have two problems/questions:
1. When I go to start up mysql I receive the following: error 2002 (hy000): can't connect to local mysql server through socket 'tmp/mysql.sock' I have been searching the net for help but haven't found the answer.
2. I want to have mysql start on start up - do I have place a command in /etc/rc.local? If so what?
3. Simiarl to #2, but when I want to start mysql, I have to go to the directy /usr/local/mysql/bin and start mysql that way. I know there is a way to just make it so you can type the mysql command anywhere and logged into mysql - any help there?
Thank you for your time and help,
