Need help for Mysql Configuration - Digital Ocean - Error #2002

MySQL DigitalOcean Ubuntu 16.04

We need help for configuring the MySQL on the digital ocean.

Here is the issue we are facing,
When we try to access/connect from phpMyAdmin , it shows the following error:

2002 - No such file or directory The server is not responding (or the local server’s socket is not correctly configured).

And when we try to connect from the web app (using PHP) it does not allow to connect as well.
we can’t connect with our Database droplets directly. They are not allowing us to connect with database.

Make sure this option socket = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock is set in /etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d/mysqld.cnf and that /var/run/mysqld already exists and is owned by mysql user.
