Question


Hi all,

installing MySQL in SuSE 7.1 seems to not work as it should... but I don't understand what's happening:

Whenever I start the safe_mysqld, it ends after few seconds _without_error_messages_.

I did install the databases.

Any idea what to do?

thanks!

Don't panic : just go to /var/lib/mysql

Your mysql dir doesn't obviously have rwx permissions -> just do chmod -R 777 /var/lib/mysql

Just a little problem : this way you don't have any protection anymore on your mysql dir :_(

I hade the same problem and i discovered the solution in /var/lib/mysql/????????.err

Hope it helps...

Nothing in /var/log/messages?

'rcmysql start|stop|status' starts/stops/checks the daemon as user 'mysql'. It's pretty handy. I wouldn't chmod 777 tho.
