I have an account on a shared server. I have jailshell access and also PhpMyAdmin.
I want to run mysql commands via SSH but I'm getting an error:
$ mysql -u mySqlUser -p mySqlPw Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock'
I can connect with PHP and phpMyAdmin, so would it be possible to call mysql from the shell and have it connect via an ip and port instead of the socket? The file
/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock does not exist - maybe that is intentional, and the only thing in
I don't have access to change system settings. I did a search in /var for mysql.sock but found nothing. However, phpMyAdmin might be connecting via a socket somehow:
Really it would just be great if I could connect via IP.
Also tried these two syntaxes:
$ mysql -u mySqlUser -p mySqlPw -h localhost $ mysql -u mySqlUser -p mySqlPw -h localhost -P 3306
Both with the same result:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
