I had several installations of mysql on my laptop, like brew mysql, brew mariadb, MAMP and plain old Mysql. Now I'm just trying to use plain old mysql after I tried deleting anything that may be related to Mysql and now I can't even start the server. I click to start it and there will be no mysqld process showing in activity monitor. When I try to connect via the command line I get this error.
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2).
I can't seem to figure out why it won't start either. I don't get an error message or anything.
