Hello, i get the same thing so i thought there was no need to start a different thread.
When i try what 'mat087' suggested i get:
root@:mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables &
root@:/var/run/mysqld# Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql
STOPPING server from pid file /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid
I will keep trying but can you give me any hint?
I use Ubuntu server 6.06 RC. I am connecting trough ssh. in the /etc/mysql/my.cnf i tryed both with
bind-address = 127.0.0.1
commented and uncommented.
