Issue :

The phpMyadmin errror “#2002 – The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server’s socket is not correctly configured)”

Fix :

1.First check whether mysql is working in the server or not.

2. Check whether there is a symbolic link from mysql.sock to /tmp. If not, create a symlink between /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock and /tmp/mysql.sock.
ln -s /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock /tmp/mysql.sock

3. If this doesn’t fix the issue check the file: /usr/local/cPanel/base/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/ and make sure the entries are like this:
$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘socket’] = ‘/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock’;
$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘connect_type’] = ‘socket’;
