MySQL - Timeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon.


Hello,

Im using MySQL via webmin, im trying to start the server but get this error,

Failed to start database :

Timeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon.
Starting MySQL: [FAILED]


So I have checked the log file in /var/log/mysqld.log

mysqld started
[ERROR] bdb: unable to initialize mutex: Function not implemented
[ERROR] bdb: process-private: unable to initialize environment
lock: Function not implemented
InnoDB: Started; log sequence number 0 43634
[ERROR] Can't init databases
[ERROR] Aborting

InnoDB: Starting shutdown...
InnoDB: Shutdown completed; log sequence number 0 43634
[Note] /usr/libexec/mysqld: Shutdown complete

mysqld ended

mysqld started
[ERROR] bdb: unable to initialize mutex: Function not implemented
[ERROR] bdb: process-private: unable to initialize environment
lock: Function not implemented
InnoDB: Started; log sequence number 0 43634
[ERROR] Can't init databases
[ERROR] Aborting


But im not sure what to do?

Thanks

Is this the first time that you've run MySQL on that box? If the startup scripts don't run the initialisation stuff for you it needs to be run manually first.

Yes this is the first time I have run it on the box.

How do I go about doing it manually?

Thanks

You can open the startup script in a text editor and it will explain the steps that you need to run (and which user to run them as). After that, MySQL should start properly.
