I have fedora 24 cinnamon on my laptop. I have installed mySql on this machine. but when I try to run mySql, it says:

ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

and when I try this: service mysqld status I get this as the result:

Redirecting to /bin/systemctl status  mysqld.service

Mysql is not supported on Fedora, you can use MariaDB out of the box, Mysql is supported by Oracle any issue should be address by them

That is a warning how to solved this warning is here, can you redit your post an post with the result of this command? it seems you have another error but you cut some important part,:

systemctl status mysql -l

try don't cut any important part.

you should look at this :

you can look your messages there :

Those nonstandard behaviors remain the default for TIMESTAMP but as of MySQL 5.6.6 are deprecated and this warning appears at startup:

[Warning] TIMESTAMP with implicit DEFAULT value is deprecated.
Please use --explicit_defaults_for_timestamp server option (see
documentation for more details).

you have to add this line in your my.cnf in the [mysqld] section.

explicit_defaults_for_timestamp = 1


NOTE : all information an error you can find here -> refman/5.7
