Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’

I know I have MySQL installed and running, but I don't know where to look to find the MySQL socket on Snow Leopard. Where is it located?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Please don't post multiple quesiton. Edit your existing quesiton with this information. They are both related to the same problem. – BinaryMisfit Jan 30 '10 at 19:01
Yes they are related, but they are completely different questions. I would have been able to solve the first question on my own, had I known the location of the MySQL socket on Snow Leopard. I am voting to reopen this question so that it may help others who may be asking the same question. – Andrew Jan 30 '10 at 19:14

Check /tmp/mysql.sock.
