Hello:

Following this tutorial, http://nerdvittles.com/?p=24493, the install fails when "passw0rd" is entered for MariaDB password. Error msg is:

FATAL: unable to change mysql root password: SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

I have destroyed and re-installed Vultr server 4 times and re-installed from ISO but the install always blows at the same point.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Rob

I might be wrong, but it appears you have mySQL install, not MariaDB. You might to change script for MySQL. Password is root & passw0rd
