I’m trying to install Movable Type (blog software) via telnet.
However, when I follow the instructions at the Movable type website to create a database, they don’t work. The instructions are to type the following:
mysqladmin create -u -p
When I type that and input my information, I get the following errors:
mysqladmin: connect to server at ‘localhost’ failed
error: 'Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/run/mysqld/mysq
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’
Anyone have any idea what else I might need to do so I can create a mysql database via telnet?
(I know how to do it if I log into my account via the web, but I don’t want to do it that way, because in the future I might have users, and I want them to be able to telnet in and install things as they need to.)
