You import a table via the green screen using the SOURCE command via the MySQL Monitor. Check out the IBM redbook page 182.

Thank you Jim and Jack for responding.
Yes you are right, the daemon was ending - with end code 0, as mentioned below.

In previous posts, by both Jack and Mike P (thanks!), instructions for removing MySQL were given. I have followed them. Now the next step is a message and all is back working. I do get a bad message from phpMyAdmin, though, "Your PHP MySQL library version 5.0.45 differs from your MySQL server version 5.1.59. This may cause unpredictable behavior.". But I will figure this later.

Next step is to figure out how to import a table via green screen to avoid phpMyAdmin...

Thanks again for your help!

Subject: Re: [WEB400] phpMyAdmin - error 2002 - Server not responding IIRC MySQL connects on port 3306. Is there a MySQL listener running?
(netstat to find out). If not it sounds like the deamon is not running correctly.

If it is try the /pathtoyourinstance/MySQLadmin -u root password 'new-password' to reset the root password.

You might want to try to use: /pathtoyourserverinstance/MySQLd_safe & to start the MySQL deamon in safe mode

(all commands issued inside QSH)

I think the time to update to the DBi is a good idea anyway since is is the version that will get support if you have a contract with Zend/IBM.

Hi Folks,

Our MySQL server was installed on our IBM i a short while ago, and
everything appeared to be working. I was working on importing a
database from a different MySQL server implementation when I began
getting the following error message when I tried to login into
phpMyAdmin. "#2002 - The server is not responding (or the local
MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)". This does
not seem to be true though, because the socket, mysql.default_socket, is set to /tmp/mysql.sock.

At this point, MySQL is unuseable as I cannot login to it, but PHP
is working fine.

Other symptoms I am seeing are when I try to start the MySQL
daemon, it starts and ends right away. It gens 2 spoolfiles. One
that just has this text in it "-n Starting MySQL ...". The second,
a joblog, which says it ran "CALL PGM(QP2SHELL)
start')" and completed with endcode 0.

Does anyone know a solution for this problem? Is my only option
to reinstall? I have found Mike Pavlak's instructions for how to
remove MySQL and I have downloaded the DBi savefile from Zend, but
I'd like to here if there is a better way before I proceed with the re-install.
