Just created new WordPress on Ubuntu 14.04 Droplet - after rebooting, MySQL won't startup and fails on manual startup. How to make it work?
I just created a new droplet, changed the MySQL root password and restarted the server with the
reboot command. Now, MySQL isn’t running, and when I try to run it, I get this:
“`# /etc/init.d/mysql start
- Starting MySQL database server mysqld [fail]”`
So I tried checking the status and I get this.
# mysqladmin status
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)'
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' exists!
Any ideas here? This is a brand new droplet with minimal modifications. All I’ve done is upload some files into
/var/www and configure and startup one vhost.
