      When I try that if says failed to reach MySQL (localhost) unless there is some other argument I need to added

      i dont know man. its your own server, nobody but you know how you config everything.. could be mysql server is off, or different port, or else..

      Had enough of the scams on lowendbox, lowendtalk is now being infiltrated by corruption so I have chosen to make an low end exit #lexit for now - you can find me HERE

      That's not going to work if the mysql server isn't up.

    • Did you try to start myslq? service mysql start or similar depending on your OS?
      If again cannot start, did you check logs? What error does it produce when the mysql won't start? Did you check status mysql.service and journalctl -xe? Do you have backups before the issue? Did you deploy a backup of the server to check?

      You asking here for help. but you do not give any detail (server, OS, installation, control panel, version, logs etc.). You will never get any real help if you just throw no details at all.

      • If a program actually fits in memory and has enough disk space, it is guaranteed to crash.
      • If such a program has not crashed yet, it is waiting for a critical moment before it crashes.

      First thing to do: have a good look into the logs.
      Next thing to do: provide a correct and full description of your situation.

    • Have you tried
      mysql -u root -p
      Via root on your server?

    • Try starting the services with the mysqld_safe script. That will skip a lot of things that could be causing a problem.

      And to think that you led us to believe that you were the reaper of power

      If your latest backup is fairly recent, you could return to that
