Hi there :) for setup a LAMP Server in Fedora i tried this code:

# yum install httpd php mysql mysql-server phpmyadmin

Everything is ok but while starting MySQL service it gives me an error, and using any mysql service gives me this error:

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

I replaced MariaDB with MySQL using:

# yum remove mysql mysql-server
# yum install community-mysql community-mysql-server

but the problem stays. I searched for mysql.sock socket file but that not exist in:


or anywhere in both installtion (MariaDB or MySQL).

Where is the problem? Where is the mysql.sock file? What should I do?

Thanks :)

How did you installed mysql? There is mariadb, community-mysql and community-mysql-server in the repo, there is no mysql.

Yes! I installed community-mysql and community-mysql-server and intent of MySQL in "I replaced MariaDB with MySQL" is community-mysql. now the main problem is mysql.sock file, and not MySQL or community-mysql! ;)
