Hi, I just follow this tutorial to change mysql data directory to new location https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-change-a-mariadb-data-directory-to-a-new-location-on-centos-7
Now mysql is running in the new location, but my application still unable to connect to the mysql server with this error:
A PHP Error was encountered Severity: Warning Message: mysqli::real_connect(): (HY000/2002): Connection refused Filename: mysqli/mysqli_driver.php Line Number: 201
I tried to login via PHPMyAdmin got this error:
#2002 - Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (111) — The server is not responding (or the local server's socket is not correctly configured).
