So my computer's host name is Blizzard. I started the mysqld process by running sudo systemctl start mysqld. I made sure to uncomment the skip-networking option in the config file, but I have an issue when trying to log into mysql. When I run mysql -p -u root -h Blizzard (or localhost or just not specifying) mysql will say
then when I type in the default password...password it just sits there and does nothing never brings me to a mysql console. Is there something I am missing here? I need this to test a program which requires a database.
Well after 30 minutes I get this error ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'Blizzard' (110)
