WAMP Server 2.5
Here is my issiue. I am attempting to follow the E-commerce tutorial in the Netbeans Java EE & Java Web learning trail (Section 3 "The NetBeans E-commerce Tutorial - Setting up the Development Environment"). In the 3rd part of that section is "Communicating with the Database Server". I'm trying to check if the MySql server is running using the command
shell> mysqladmin ping
"mysqld is alive"
If the server is runnig or:
"mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock'
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock' exists!"
If the server is not running.
ERROR 1064 <42000>: You have an error in your SQL syntax; chec the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'shell> msqladmin ping' at line 1
I should be able to enter sql commands from any command line console but I have tried the cmd.exe, Windows Powershell and a command console that is included with wamp server app titled "MySQL console. I have researched for a few days now and trying everything I could find to no avail. ANY HELP would be appreciated.
