What was the exact error message you got?  If you got 'access
denided...' something, then the problem is a MySQL internal privilege
problem and has nothing to do with safe_mysqld !

A> web:/usr/local/share/mysql# safe_mysqld --user=nobody

If you have edited safe_mysqld, get back the original version and
start it as follows:

./bin/safe_mysqld &

If this doesn't work, you will get a log in the database directory.
