Error 13 Permission Denied means that the mysqld process doesn't have
permission by the filesystem to create whatever files/directories it
needs to in the dir you have listed as datadir. Make sure mysqld is
running as the right user (ps aux | grep mysqld) or chmod -R the
datadir so mysqld can write to it.
