    May 14 13:57:58 systemd[1]: Starting LSB: Start the MySQL database server...
    May 14 13:58:00 mysql[1184]: Starting service MySQL ..done

    mysqladmin -u root password xxxxxxxxxxxx
    mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
    error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)'
    Check that mysqld is running and that the
    socket: '/var/run/mysql/mysql.sock' exists!

    I get these messages from the shell

    Can some one help?

    Default Re: mariadb not working

    Regardless whether this is on 13.2 or not, I've seen this question answered many times in the Applications forum.

    Unless there is something "Beta" about this system, I'd recommend you do a search in that forum, you'll solve your problem in quick order.
    If this isn't on a system that is somehow using Beta quality code, this post should be moved to the Applications forum.
