Linux - Redhat - How to fix MySQL in Redhat 7.3

You might find that the rpms that come with RedHat (7.3) distro do not work correctly. The ones from Mysql site work fine. I had just installed the RPM in Rehat 7.3, and for some reason it didn't place /tmp/mysql.sock. It was in /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock, so a simple:

ln /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock /tmp/mysql.sock

... that did the trick. If you want to use the MySQL-Max RPM, you must first install the standard MySQL RPM.
