I try to ./mysqladmin -u name -p password and it get an error.

www# ./mysqladmin -u jay -p 259007316943305
Enter password:
./mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)'
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock' exists!

So then I think ok, I need to start it...

./mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)'
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock' exists!

So I don't know... It's been 2 weeks trying to hack this problem...

PS: I checked Linux forms and MySQL forms and nothing.... :\

Did you start your MySQL server? From the command line type:$ ps aux | grep mysql
