Here is the error for every site, and every option when trying to work with MySQL:

mysqlcheck: Got error: 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) when trying to connect

It's like it's gone completely.:confused:

I chose the advanced option but left all the default options and added GD, cross protect., and raised apache limit.

Any thoughts?


Another thought is a step by step on upgrading without easy/apache/ if this was a populated server the problem would be huge...

Thanks,

I thought MySQL and Apache are two completely different entities.. Have you restarted MySQL from WHM?

ps -auxxx | grep mysql

Does this show a bunch of MySQL processes with your grep process at the bottom?

If so, then:

ls -la /tmp/mysql.sock

Does this return a result? Or do you get an error like: /bin/ls: /tmp/nothing: No such file or directory

If you don't get an error, then:

edit /etc/my.cnf
insert under [mysqld]: socket=/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
save & close.
service mysql stop
service mysql start

If you do get an error, then: service mysql start

I have the same problem and followed those steps but it didn't work.

ls -la /tmp/mysql.sock
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 25 Apr 17 20:28 /tmp/mysql.sock -> /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock

I then edited the /etc/my.cnf file

[email protected] [~]# service mysql stop
No mysqld pid file found. Looked for /var/lib/mysql/river.tsnhost.com.pid.
[email protected] [~]# service mysql start
[email protected] [~]# Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql
030619 22:31:26 mysqld ended

tail -f /var/lib/mysql/river.tsnhost.com.err what do you see?

What are the permissions/ownership like on /var/lib/mysql and /var/lib/mysql/* ?

I did the reboot from my sql and got the error from above, but i rebooted the server and it kicked in.

To be honest I am not sure what the heck this is and how a reboot can differ from the restart services.

I also don't know why easy Apache would of effected this. I also did the upgrade 7, so it may of this been that some how.

It's All fixed now from the reboot. I guess I should of rebooted before posting. :eek: Shoulda, woulda,



Thanks for all the help,

I had been running MySQL 4 for over a month with no problems. Then I updated to WHM 7.1.0 cPanel 7.1.0-R20. Still no problems at this point. Then I updated /scripts/easyapache to the July 1st build. At that point MySQL gave me the following error:

Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (111)


Then after trying some of the suggestions the error changed to this:

Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)


I followed the directions in all of the related posts and nothing seemed to work for me. So here is what I did to finally make it work:

I read a post at the RackShack forum that the following needed to be in the /etc/my.cnf file:

[mysqld]
set-variable = max_connections=500

[client]
port = 3306
socket = /tmp/mysql.sock
[mysqld]
port = 3306
socket = /tmp/mysql.sock


I only had the first 2 lines, so I added the [client] and [mysqld] parts.


Then I shut down mysql and chkservd with the following commands:

service mysql stop
/etc/rc.d/init.d/chkservd stop


Then I removed the following files:

rm -rf /tmp/mysql.sock
rm -rf /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock


Now restart mysql and chkservd with the following commands and mysql will create the mysql.sock file in the /tmp directory as oulined in the updated my.cnf file:

service mysql start
/etc/rc.d/init.d/chkservd start


Now create the softlink with this:

ln -s /tmp/mysql.sock /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock


There were a couple of variations in that last last command to create the softlink. I guess it depends on where mysql creates the mysql.sock file when it starts. So if you are trouble shooting you might shut down mysql as shown above, then remove the mysql.sock files. Then restart mysql as shown above and see where it creates the mysql.sock file. If it creates it in the /tmp directory then you need the softlink command shown above. If it creates the mysql.sock file in the /var/lib/mysql directory then you problaby need to use the softlink command like this as shown in some of the other related posts:

ln -s /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock /tmp/mysql.sock


That worked for me. Hope this helps someone down the line.
