mysql.sock Problems


hunger buster
Just updated to 10.1, and mysql broke --
d/l'd 3.23.42 and installed over 3.23.37,
tried doing all the safe_mysql junk, and not doing it...
rebooting a few times in the process...

mysql startup IS in the startupItems,
/tmp/mysql.sock IS there,
mysqld IS running,

BUT I get the classic error :
'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)'

any ideas? I can't remember how I fixed this last time...
my bad

/tmp/mysql.sock WAS NOT there...
/tmp/mysqld.sock WAS there

% ln -s /tmp/mysqld.sock /tmp/mysql.sock

...did the trick
