okay.. dont mean to start to new thred, but i've read and read, and nothing seems to be working..
okay here is whats going on: i have a fresh install of Red Hat 7.2, and i d/l the latest version of mysql from mysql.com, when to the /usr/local dir and ran gunzip < /root/mysql-version-.tar.gz | tar xvf - just as the instructions say, then changed dir to /usr/local and ran ln -s mysql-version-dir mysql to link mysql to make it easier for typing. went into mysql and ran scripts/mysql_install_db to create the grant tables. after doing this i tried to start the server by running bin/safe_mysql --user=mysqld &
and this is what happenes
[root@localhost mysql]# Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /usr/local/mysql/data
020507 22:47:40 mysqld ended
and freezes till i push enter.
aslo if i try to run bin/mysqladmin version to check and see if mysql is running i get this
bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)'
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock' exists!
i've done this server times, and keep getting nothing, and making things worse, and having to reformat and resintall linux.. anyone have any suggestions or any help??????
had to much stuff cluttered up, and mysql files floating everywhere, and didnt have much of a choice, and seeing that it was already a fresh install of linux. i didnt mind much.. mysql was the first thing i've been trying to get running on it before ido anything else
i'd love to avoid reformating and installing, if i could figure out how to get mysql to install properly and running. formating and starting over is the only way i'm sure that i'm that i get everything with mysql cleaned up and can start over trying to figure out what went wrong..
anyone get mysql working with red hat 7.2? any help would be nice? process that i should be taking to install mysql. or what i may be doing wrong.. i've read serveral installation guides, and i've searched through forums, and done everything they say, but nothing seems to be working.. i keep getting the same error message...
check the log files and see what error messages are in there.
you'll find them in:
Post them in here if you still cant figure it out. Seems like either: a) you have something else running on the same port. b) mysql is already running. c) urmmm, there is more but i cant think of them just now.
