I installed mysql server yesterday on my droplet, it worked properly yesterday but today I tried logging into the mysql $ mysql -u root -p and it throws an error (ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’ (2) ).
Please I need help with this, it’s my first time deploying on digital ocean and I don’t know how to solve this particular issue, all help from the internet seem not to work and I’m pressured for time to get it working, please help me.
