Subject [users@httpd] Installing MySQL Debian Apache2
Date Sun, 27 Mar 2016 11:35:15 GMT

Something of a newbie to Linux, so if this question is too simple for this list, please point
me elsewhere.

aspberry Pi) and having problems setting password for root when installing MySQL.  Despite
seeming to accept the password, it does not seem to and  I get:

when starting mysql with:

mysql -u root -p whatever

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling

mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables

update user set Password=PASSWORD('new-password') where user='root';

Now getting:

ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock'

Is there another way to set this password?
