I am currently trying to get a xserve we use as web server back up and running after it went down during a power failure last week. Since it didnt shut down gracefully I have had trouble with the MySQL and PHP services. At first I couldnt get mysql to run at all. After reinstalling mysql 5, I was able to get mysql running again. I then installed phpMyAdmin so that I could create a new database/mysql user for a web application that I plan on running. However, I keep receiving an error in the setup of phpMyAdmin that says #2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured). I have received similar errors, not just in phpMyAdmin, but in my console log whenever I was trying to start mysql with no avail. I get this error despite setting phpMyAdmin to connect with TCP instead of socket. Im pretty sure this issue has to do with my installation of php. Do I just need to reinstall php?
Mac OS X 10.4.11 Server
Xserve Dual 2.3 Ghz PowerPC G5
1 GB DDR SDRAM
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
