I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
We have a mysql 5.0 database which is giving us hassles when trying
to create a temporary table.
The creation works perfectly on the slave machine as well as all
our other db's, however on the one specific main server we are getting
the message "ERROR 1005 (HY000): Can't create table
'/tmp/#sql4a27_68eed1_0.frm' (errno: -1)"
We have been trying to figure this out for more than a week now
with no luck.
When looking in the mysql error.log file, the innodb states that
there is either another mysqld running (confirmed and not the case) or
it is a filesystem permissions problem.
We have checked several times and the permissions on the /tmp
filesystem is the same as on all servers.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as google didnt help
