Restarted droplet and now "Unable to establish database connection" - tried to restart mysql and says can't start
Hi. I recently rebooted my droplet due to some issues with performance. Now after rebooting and restarting Nginx and PHP-FPM the website is still down. I tried to restart mySQL but I get the message “ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ’/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’ (2)”
Any help would be really appreciated as the site is completely down and I’m being flooded with emails of complaint.
