If the socket isn't there, it raises the question of how the mysql 
client is working with no problem, since that socket is how the client 
normally connects to the server. Unless you've modified the config to 
enable networking (which you should not unless it is essential to access 
the server from another machine.)

So there's a socket somewhere. To see where, try this:

lsof -U -a -p $( pgrep mysqld )
