I'm having a problem starting the mysqld server...I'm using the redhat rpm
version of MySQL-3.22.15-gamma-1. I get the following error in the error
log for mysql:
mysqld started on Wed Apr 7 12:58:21 EDT 1999
990407 12:58:21 Can't start server : Bind on unix socket: Permission denied
990407 12:58:21 Do you already have another mysqld server running on socket:
990407 12:58:21 Aborting
mysqld ended on Wed Apr 7 12:58:21 EDT 1999
I'm trying to start using the provided rc script as root. The strange
thing is that /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock does not exist!
Is it possible that a socket is still bound to the port that mysql uses
even though no server is running? If so, how do I fix this problem?
