http://serverfault.com – I want to recover my mysql root password so I have followed this tutorial and stopped the mysql server . when I am trying to start it its show a error message and won't start. I believe the error is due to read only file system. Is their any other way of restarting the mysql server root@web01:/home/# /etc/init.d/mysql stop Stopping MySQL database server: mysqld ^Z [2]+ Stopped /etc/init.d/mysql stop root@web01:/home/# mysql ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (111) root@web01:/home/# root@web01:/home/# (HowTos)
