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:
* 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. Thanks.
