    mysql.socket

    I want to run apache, php, and mysql together... but I am getting a mysql.socket error... the file does exist.

    I have also tried to upgrade mysql, but I get errors that says that files conflict.

    I hate setting up software. It never goes the way the tutorial/install guide you are following tells you. I hate it when you read tutorial and it says:

    Step 3 : Do blah...
    Step 4 : If all that worked you will now see a screen with blah...

    And you are tearing your hair out because you never got the promissed screen in step 4

    Have you started the mysql daemon? You haven't told us which platform you are using. If its *nix

    1) to start the mysql server daemon:
    /path/to/mysql/bin/mysql.server start

    2) if the server daemon is running then you will have the following file:
    /tmp/mysql.sock
