    MySQl Error (2) with freeradius and mysql

    I am at wits end. Freeradius with mysql install on Ubunto 12.04 64 bit. All went well, but the error I get is "Error: rlm_sql_mysql: Couldn't connect socket to MySQL server radius@" The following checks were made. I can login to mysql with user radius (mysql -u radius -p) The mysqld.sock file is under /var/run/mysqld (So it cannot be a misplaced file). I start freeradius -X and it works fine, it does not complain with the same error mentioned above. The radcheck utility also works when testing a user in the sql database. The only thing I can still think of is a permission error as I am running sudo freeradius -X . Changing the sql.conf from localhost to loopback ip or eth0 ip does not work either. Starting freeradius /etc/init.d/freeradius produces a fail, but no log entries to suggest if it is related to the same problem. Any suggestions will be appreciated

    Part of the problem and the symptoms you describe are very similar to those found in post, which unfortunately hasn't a solution yet.

    The difference in your description is that when you start freeradius as a service in an already running system the service fails. You are very expicit to mention to test sudo freeradius -X, which gives no error(s). Just checking the obvious: did you start service freeradius as superuser since you mention no error loggings (in /var/log/freeradius/radius.log?)?
