Nativecode=Can't connect to local MySQL server through socke

nativecode=Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock’ (111)] ** mysql://asteriskuser:[email protected]/asterisk

I have installed FreePBX twice now and am getting the same error. MYSQL will not start. The install guide I used was:

The install went great and evrything worked right up till the re-boot and then MYSQL freaks. Any help would be greatly apreciated. I am sure all is in order other than this MYSQL prolem.

Thanks guys!

check is mysql running??

No it is not. I believe sql not running is the problem. It fails during the boot sequence. Also a failure message when I run mysql from the terminal that it is ending.

did u change the passw0rd

go here and look at the log
/var/log

try to start in safe mode

/usr/local/mysql/bin/safe_mysqld
