MySQL not working. Error: 'mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed'
I had managed to install MySQL successfully but after I shut down and restart, it fails. It was installed such that the SQL server would run automatically whenever the system is running. I've re-installed it once. I'm very new to web development and MySQL. Please help. I've attached the error screenshot.
I've searched for mysqld.sock, but unable to locate it. I had set a password to access the server, which does not work anymore. Trawling the Internet has not helped. Sitepoint was recommended by the author of the book I'm referring.
