Hi. I took a snapshot of one of my droplets, it's the only snapshot I have. The snapshot includes a working MySQL database with login credentials. After creating a new droplet using the snapshot image I'm able to login with root using the new password, but I'm unable to log into MySQL using the login credentials I created within the snapshot image. I also tried using the new password for root generated when creating a new droplet.
The error message is:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
Could you someone please help assist? The original droplet that I took the snapshot image that was used for the new droplet works perfectly fine when logging into MySQL with login credentials.
