Warning: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) in...

I get this error message too - I think because I can't actually start mysql, or it stops immediately after starting:

% sudo ./bin/safe_mysqld -user=mysql &
Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /usr/local/var
020314 00:27:53 mysqld ended

I don't get the command prompt back after running the safe_mysqld command ( I interrupt it with a crtl-c), unless I drop that trailing '&' argument. (Which I couldn't find it in the man page.)

But with or without the ampersand, the results are the same.

I tried ps auwx - mysql doesn't show up.

Any ideas?

And thanks for the very helpful series!
