How to fix permissions, I accidentally entered “sudo chown -R username /”?
I got the sudo to working again by logging into the Root account however the WordPress website shows a database error and I’m positive it’s because of the wrong permissions now… I can’t seem to connect to the database and I’m not sure which permissions to fix.
I get this error when I try to start the msql:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’ (2)
Also, I have a snapshot that I have, would that fix my mistake? It’s my last resort if so.
