Troubleshooting :

»  #2002 – Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock’ (2)
The server is not responding (or the local server’s socket is not correctly configured).

( This means your mysql server service is stopped , you must start the service  “service mysql start”)

» You don’t have permission to access /phpMyAdmin/ on this server.

Open /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpMyAdmin.conf file and find the lines “Deny from All ” and comment those lines and restart httpd service
