Mac OS X keeps deleting my /tmp files (mysql.sock)

NO SHIT! Hell, I must have missed that in the last 25 years
or so.

MySQL on BSD does some strange things, the socket is
one of them.

1. Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (46)

2. 2002 Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock'(46)


The difficulty with trying to help someone like you is that I don't have
the full history of your problems, as you seem to have posted them in
different threads.


That means that your previous installation created a Windows service for
MySQL, and has not been removed. The ideal way would be to get rid of
it, but if you have already uninstalled the previous version, it's
unlikely that you can do so. The simple answer is to run the MySQL
Configuration wizard again, and select a different name for the MySQL
service. I can't remember all the options in the drop-down menu, but
there's something like MySQL41. It doesn't matter what you call it, as
long as it's not MySQL. You should then be able to get up and running.
