I can't use mysql

I have just purchased Linode,my system is ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

I followed the start-up guide to install everything needed. But get failed in Mysql.

It always print errol :"

error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)'

Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' exists!


I don't know what to do next. Please help.

Thanks a lot

Have you properly installed MySQL server, configured it, and made sure it's running?
