When i tried to created a db (for testing puposes) in root...i wasnt able to. so then i tried to restart mysql stopped but unfortunately i have not been able to get mysql back up...i get a messeage saying
"Timeout error occurred trying to start MySql Daemon"

Could you please assist...

Did you see the logs?

Check your mysql logs, if you have a binary package installed they should be at /var/logs/mysql/error.log
Please post the las lines of that file so we can help you

Post Maybe is your PHP config

After search for a while i've found this post at

And i think this could be the solution to your trouble:

S72D - November 11, 2009 - 17:16

I had the same issue when I logged onto my site this morning. After some searching I found a module that took care of this issue for me. I recommend using it and it is simple to install, enable, and use. It is the drupal_tweaks module. Just follow the install instructions then once it is all enable go into your php tab and change your php limit. I changed mine to 256M before it took care of the problem.
Hope that help you. Have a nice day
