I have just installed mysql 8 server onto a bsd 12.2 laptop.
When I tried to log in I could not.

Eventually I deleted and installed again

When I tried to log in the 2nd time, same thing:

Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket /tmp/mysql.sock

That is no surprise because it does not exist.

The general wisdom on the internet I came across said reinstall.

Another group say it is in:


Not there either.

How do I get it back?
