Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/home/data/mysql/mysql.sock' (13)

I just installed mysql on linux. If I open a terminal, su to root,
then type "mysql", I am able to connect to the server and run my
queries.

If I exit out of su so that I am my own id (baisley) and type "mysql",
I get this error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/home/data/mysql/mysql.sock' (13)

Any idea why? mysql.sock has full permissions (read/write/execute), so
it should be accessable by user baisley. If I am baisley and I run
"mysql -u mysql" (as mysql is the user that the RPM set up), it will
connect.

What I would like to be able to do is run this without having to be
user mysql all the time. How do I go about setting that up, or is it
better to run all my queries/make tables as 1 user?

Thanks.

Actually, when I am baisley and I try to "mysql -u mysql", it DOESN'T
work. I get the same message. Not sure how to fix this.

It's really strange. I downloaded the latest 4.0.16 RPM from mysql.com and installed it to my Fedora system, and did *not* do anything else (Actually I am completely new to mysql). I wrote a test php script to test mysql (ftp_connect('localhost', 'root');), but got the following error: Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/custcare/dbconn.inc on line 2

Hi, my first time posting on a newsgroup. anyway, let's cut to the chase. I'm trying to migrate mysql database form one server to another server.

Dear All, I just downloaded & installed MYSQL. It seemed to work and I can start it and enter my password and change a directory but that is about all. I have been ready and playing "hit & miss" all afternoon and it seems to have something to do with the "mysql_install_db" not being installed correctly -- I have tried multiple installs with multiple downloaws. My log. . .

Sorry if this is a really dumb question. I am trying to connect to our remote MySQL server (which is running just fine). I have a perl script which worked just fine on my other Fedora 4 box (all servers are Fedora 4 with latests updates). The one that worked fine it down and I cannot compare anything against it (it was a client also). My problem is, when I try to connect to the server I get:

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
