Description Joseph S. Berrios 2001-04-20 18:54:40 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2smp i686)

When I try to run the command 'safe_mysqld' in my system, it terminates and
the daemon does not get to start.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Type in the command prompt:  safe_mysqld &

Actual Results:  Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql
010420 18:46:53  mysqld ended

Expected Results:  I expect to get the mysqld up and running

"/etc/init.d/mysqld start" or "service mysqld start"
Comment 2 Joseph S. Berrios 2001-04-20 19:40:08 EDT
after I execute the command:  "/etc/init.d/mysqld start"
I get the following message:  
Starting MySQL:                                            [  OK  ]

if I try to test if the daemon is running, I type the following command:
 "ps -aux | grep mysql"

I get the following response:
root      2515  0.0  0.0  1620  600 pts/4    S    19:30   0:00 grep mysql

Also if I try to execute:  "mysqladmin -u root -p password 'new-password'"
I get the following output:

Enter password: 
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (111)'
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock'

This does not occur in a fresh, non-configured install, so it's likely you've
done some misconfiguration.

Move your configuration files out of the way, and if this doesn't work, move
your databases (make sure /var/lib/mysql/ is empty) and start again. Then work
your way up until you see what's not working.
