    FC4 and MySql

    Seems I'm back with a new server and new problem...

    This is one I have been beating my head against the wall on, I have spent hours trying to work out a solution, as I'm sure it's something I have overlooked.

    To recap, I have a ded server, has a fresh install of FC4 on it, and my connection is via putty. I am going through the process of setting it up and as I try to config mysql, that's where the problems begin!!

    I'm not close to being good at this yet, but I am trudging along learning as I go, so I do understand the concept...

    This is what I get, I can log into mysqladmin, no prob, when I go to log into mysql after saying mysql -u root -p, giving my pass, it gets nasty and say's the var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock are missing...

    I have gone the forums here and have tried every suggestion I could find, one thing to note, as I try to start mysql or restart for that matter, it does ot recognize it as a service.

    The install of Fedora was done via the hosting company, so I was not part of that process, it would easy enough to give them a shout to get it right, but they kindly ask for $75 an hour for any work, so I'm trying to sort this out myself with very little luck thus far!

    Does anyone of you have a suggestion or would mind nudging me in the right direction with this?

    I feel I am close, but becoming more frustrated by the day...

    My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.
