Mysql.sock problem can't connect (solved)

Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock’ (111)]

This is what I get when try to open freepbx.

Appreciate anyones help.

Thank you.

I am fine, Your good I hope…

Check the log file /var/log/mysqld.log

start mysql in safe mode if need be and check the log once more

thanks bubba. I checked the log to find the following.

Can’t start server: can’t create PID file: Permission denied

So I did a search and found this and fixed the problem.

chown -R mysql /var/run/mysqld/

So far so good.

Thanks again for all your help and kindness. I became a grandpa over the ThanksGiving weekend. Thanks again.

Glad u got it going…

Gran Papa Fun Fun,

Thank you Sir, how are you?

bubba something went wrong on this isntall with no warnings or anything yet when I do /etc/init.d/mysqld start it fails.

update from the log file.

Can’t start server: can’t create PID file: Permission denied

make sure mysql is running at start up
chkconfig mysqld on
if it is set to start and is just starting find out why


and read the log for error

check the asterisk.conf file and make sure all the pathing is correct


astetcdir => /etc/asterisk
astmoddir => /usr/lib/asterisk/modules
astvarlibdir => /var/lib/asterisk
astagidir => /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin
astspooldir => /var/spool/asterisk
astrundir => /var/run/asterisk
astlogdir => /var/log/asterisk
