MYSQL Help Please

MYSQL Help Please

MYSQL Help Please

I am having some problem installing MySQL on A Red Hat 6.0 w/ 2.2.5 kernel. I have tried the RPM and the Binary from the MySQL web site and each time I am having different problems. Trying to install the 3.2 version.

When I try and connect as root after the install I keep getting a connection refused error. The documentation at MySQL says that it should be wide open until a root password is set, however... I used:

mysql -u root -p

then hit enter at the password prompt. I have also tried the other options offered at the mysql web site.

Keeps aborting with a recursion error when I try to compile it.

Pardon my lack of information. I am new to MySQL.

RE: MYSQL Help Please

Ok. I slept.

MySQL is installed and working. Problem: Overcomplicating the issue.

Please disregard this post. Ok. I gotta tell ya anyway.

I installed the Server, but not the client RPM.

... God Twist my arm won't ya...
