Subject:Upgrade from 3.23.x to 4.0.18
View as plain text  
Quick question.  I just did an upgrade from source from 3.23.x to
4.0.18.  A few things came up.

1. chown -R mysql var causes my RedHat 7.3 to complain.

	chown: getting attributes of `var': No such file or directory

2. Stopped mysql by typing 

     shell> service mysql stop

3. Tried to start using "/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe --user=mysql
&"

[root@narsil mysql]# touch: creating `/usr/local/mysql/var/narsil.err':
No such file or directory
chown: getting attributes of `/usr/local/mysql/var/narsil.err': No such
file or directory
Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /usr/local/mysql/var
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe: /usr/local/mysql/var/narsil.err: No
such file or directory
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe: /usr/local/mysql/var/narsil.err: No
such file or directory
tee: /usr/local/mysql/var/narsil.err: No such file or directory
040220 13:04:57  mysqld ended
tee: /usr/local/mysql/var/narsil.err: No such file or directory

Typing "ps -aux | grep my" displays:

mysql    32238  0.0  2.3 54068 11836 ?       S    13:04   0:00

/usr/local/mysql/
mysql    32246  0.0  2.3 54068 11836 ?       S    13:04   0:00
/usr/local/mysql/
mysql    32247  0.0  2.3 54068 11836 ?       S    13:04   0:00
/usr/local/mysql/
mysql    32248  0.0  2.3 54068 11836 ?       S    13:04   0:00
/usr/local/mysql/

So it would appear that the mysql daemon is running but now I can't
access the databases with the mysql client e.g., mysql -u root -p.

Help would be most graciously appreciated.
