I am trying to clone Open Monitor – Aggregator. The Open Source Project from Umit Project.
Its been about 1.5 years since I started contributing to Umit Project.
But soon after I cloned the aggregator from git, I realized I am I don’t have mysql setup. when I used the command to enter into mysql shell:
mysql -u root -p
After entering all the passwords I could remember to have ever used, all I could get in return was :
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
I was really pissed then I realized ,I have never really installed mysql server since I upgraded my system to Ubuntu 12.04
so I went to su mode, typed:
apt-get install mysql-server
Bingo ! it worked in the first ,I could get my mysql running in no time.
Then I created a database named “openmonitor” using :
create database openmonitor;
