can't start mysql daemon
I'm running Red Hat 9
I downloaded the binaries for mysql 4.0.14 and installed them to /usr/local/mysql
The mysql client works fine, and at one point i had both the server and client running and actually working, however now i cannot start the mysql daemon.
When the current directory is set to /usr/local/mysql/bin i try typing:
the console reponds with:
Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql
##### HH:MM:SS mysqld ended
the #'s are the pid and HMS is a time stamp.
can anyone tell my why my mysql server stops running as soon as i start it?
