Subject:problems starting server
View as plain text  
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:
/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock ?
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?
