Recommended Posts

Dear Forums, am receiving Mysql error msg 13 unable to read/write localhost.pid. Have not been able to find localhost.pid file. Problem started after tried to start Apache and modified httpd.conf to make server name: 127.0.0.1 . Please post any suggestions, thanks

is this when you are starting mysql... if not, what are you doing?

have you ran a search for that file?

 

unix:

 

% su

(type root password)

# find / -name localhost.pid

It sounds like you the user you are starting mysql with does not have the permissions to create the mysql.pid file.

Dear Forums, thanks much, I followed gizmola and effigy suggestions and launched the mysqld dameon as root user which resolved the permissions issue. thanks again
