Hi John,


As mentioned in my post, I can open mysql -u root -p with no problem. MySQL is running, it's just the sock file that is not being created.

Hi all,


This is my second installation of MySQL 5.7. I've had more problems with this version than any previous one. The mysql57-server port is installed.


MySQL is running, I can run mysql -u root -p with no problem, but mysqld.sock is not created in /opt/local/var/run/mysql57. A mysqld.sock.lock file is _is_ created in that folder.


That folder is owned by _mysql, permissions were set to 755, but even 777 makes no difference.


/opt/local/etc/mysql57/my.cnf reads:


# Use default MacPorts settings

!include /opt/local/etc/mysql57/macports-default.cnf



user         = mysql

host         = localhost

password = "blahblahblah"

port         = 3306

socket     = /opt/local/var/run/mysql57/mysqld.sock



log-error = /opt/local/var/log/mysql57/mysql-error.log

socket     = /opt/local/var/run/mysql57/mysqld.sock


The error log just shows a normal startup, no issues. What else can I check or configure to make this work?
