I'm newbie in MySQL. I installed MySQL5.5 Server and Client in my Debian Wheezy. All I did was enter
aptitude install myqsl-server. Now, I have no idea what to do!
I found a webpage that says I have to set up a root user password first, and, to do that, I have to enter with the following command:
mysqladmin -u root password NEWPASSWORD
Where "NEWPASSWORD" is, well, the new password. The rest are literally commands. So, I opened my terminal and as normal user, tried to enter with this command and I got this output:
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)'
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' exists!
So, considering all I did, what are the next steps? I have to create a root user password, but for what? And after that what do I have to do to create a simple table representing data?
All tutorials I read on the internet are very difficult to understand!
