Error: "An error occurred authenticating. Please try again later." It was working completely fine since many days but the power cable was loose so the system shut down. After restarting the computer, this error persisted.

I tried to check keystone service, by checking the apache service status. It is working fine. But mysql service doesn't seem to work properly. When I write mysql -u root -p it says, can't connect to MYSQL server through socket /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock. Is this the reason for the authentication error? How can I resolve it?

Without the database, nothing works in OpenStack. Time to start MySQL troubleshooting.

Sounds like MySQL/MariaDB is not running. Probably it was not enabled to start on boot.
