mysql-server loads then automaticly ends

Recommended Posts

RH 9



groupadd mysql

useradd -g mysql mysql

unzipped mysql-standard-4.0.15.pc-linux-i686.tar.gz in /usr/local/mysql directory


chow -R root

chown -R mysql data

chgrp -R mysql


these are all the steps outlined for installing

as I understand I should be able to execute mysql as follows


[root@localhost bin]# ./safe_mysqld user=mysql &

[1] 2322

[root@localhost bin]# Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql

030926 16:24:30 mysqld ended

[1]+ Done ./safe_mysqld user=mysql


it seems to run and then automaticly end ?


then there is the method to start the server


[root@localhost support-files]# ./mysql.server start

Can\'t execute ./bin/mysqld_safe from dir /var/lib


I\'ve tried installing from a rpm with no luck so I turned to trying to install and run from the binary, besides the binary is a newer versiton that what I\'ve found in the rpm format.




thank you

you may need to add a datadir switch to the startup command:




also, check the hostname.err file under the data directory to gather more information on why this is happening...
