Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock'
I created a project with PHP7 and Apache server. I also install MySQL database in my VPS (Linux Ubuntu 18.0.4)
But when I publish this project into VPS and run
mysql -u root -p command I got an error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock'
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
Please help if you knew any reason.

Maybe the MySql service is not active. To check the status you can use the command below:
sudo service mysql status
If your MySql is not active, you can active it by command below:
sudo service mysql start
To restart service:
sudo service mysql restart
To stop service:
sudo service mysql stop
I hope it useful for you.

I got the same error, you have to reload
apparmorsetting. You can run commands as below:
sudo service mysql stop sudo /etc/init.d/apparmor reload sudo service mysql start
Run line by line command, and finally run
mysql -u root -pcommand to access to MySql CLI. If you can access it, your issue is resolved.
