MySQL Socket Error

Hello All,

I am new to this forum so please excuse me if I am posting this in the wrong forum.

We were getting the following error with our Database:

Error 1: Too Many Connections

I talked to our web host's live chat tech support and they told me two issues caused

1. Disk Space was full 100% (which I fixed by removing backup file).
2. SELinux was interfering with MySQL start (which I fixed by disabling SELinux)

After I rebooted the server I started mysqld (command executed OK), but I
noticed the file "mysql.sock" was missing, which caused us to see the following

Error 2: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) [2002]

I changed the socket setting in /etc/my.cnf to point to "/var/temp/mysql.sock"
and restarted mysql, which created a new mysql.sock in the new directory, but
the error still remains.

Does anyone have any other suggestions on how to fix this issue?
