I upgraded and when i try to restart mysql i get this error.

/usr/local/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)' Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock' exists! mysql has failed, please contact the sysadmin (result was "Warning, no valid mysql.sock file found.mysql has failed").

I cant work out what has gone wrong so i tried to do what is mention in this thread


I run it as admin being a FREEBSD server

/var/run : permission denied

If someone can help me iam willing to pay to get this fixed.
