  • MySQL dump error

    Okay, one problem down, one to go

    I get the following error when trying to do a dump:

    mysqldump: Got error: 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) when trying to connect


    Any idea what that means?

    The MySQL server went down or you did not enter the correct information.

      This error means either MySQL crashed, it's not running or it can't find the socket. You need to contact your host about this. Here is more info on this error:
