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

2 day old install of 11.3; I installed MYSQL from yast2; 12 items relating to MYSQL are shown as installed; on a command line (as root) I get “ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysql/mysql.soc” when I type MYSQL.

Another problem ; Apache is installed and running, but my install of PHP from Yast has been troubled, and very much unlike what I read here : “” ; a web page with phpinfo() shows nothing; do I have to do another manual config of LAMP ? If so where’s a good current page of what to modify ? (was really looking to avoid that again !)

Welcome to openSUSE forum.

Maybe it’s a silly question, did you start the services like Apache and MySQL.

service apache2 start

service mysql start

Good luck!
