Edit: I tried .jpg, .gif, and .png and none seem to work with Dreamhost forum bbcode.
I’m trying to use a shell script called MySQL Performance Tuning Primer Script that runs diagnostics on your database and then suggests recommendations. It’s sitting in my root and when I run it, it says:
that my “mysqld” process can’t be found, saying that if it’s installed at a custom path, I need to insert it into the script’s “socket” variable shown here:
So I log in to the mysql console via ssh, type “show variables”, and find the socket variable:
But then when I try to run the script, it continues to say it can’t find the socket:
I’m new to SSH in general and don’t even know what a socket is. Am I doing something painfully obviously wrong?
