find / -name mysql
it should show you all 'mysql' files. If not, check also with MySQL and similar.

try 'safe_mysqld' logged in as root. this should start the daemon. then you can register as root and set up users and so on. hope that helps.

mysql running

You need to know where you have your mysql\bin directory first. I would use locate mysql
cd to mysql/bin

type./mysql -u mysql -p
this will prompt you for a password.

Alternatively type ./mysql -u root
and this will probably let you in as most people forget to set the password for root when installing mysql.

The mysqld_safe command is the initial start of mysql. If this does not work, repost and I will find my instructions that I knocked up about all this.
