I have recently installed Snow Leopard onto my Mac, and MySQL stopped working. I went into the terminal and used 'rm -r' on my old directory, and redownloaded the new version from the mysql website. I followed all of the instructions on HiveLogic, but am getting the error listed in the title.
When I run 'locate mysql.sock', I don't get any results. 'locate .sock' returns results that down seem like they relate to the problem. My understanding is that I need to restart mysqld, but the instructions that I have found on other questions don't seem to do that for me. How do I restart mysqld?
