Unhappy I have a huge problem in mysql4?

I have a problem in mysqld I can't make is run. On boot up it was included on my rc.d, to run on boot up. Then suddenly it will end automatically, and when I run the server on /etc/libexec/ it says "Fatal error: Please read "Security" section of the manual to find out how to run mysqld as root! ... Aborting then ./mysqld Shutdown complete.

How do I solve this problem? Can somebody help me? thank you very much!

It appears that you're trying to run MySQL as root, which is generally not a good idea. You should create a user account for MySQL (don't actually allow this account to log in) and then start MySQL with the --user=<your mySQL user> command line option to make it run. You may need to modify your start up script to pass the option to mysqld.
