safe_mysqld isn't running
Authored by: robg on Apr 05, '01 02:02:31AM
Your 'ps' output should look more like this:
root   437   0.0  0.1     1720    644  p2- S      0:00.05 sh ./safe_mysqld
root 450 0.0 0.2 11320 1112 p2- S 0:00.17 /usr/local/mysql/libexec/mysqld
robg 452 0.0 0.0 5724 168 std RV+ 0:00.02 grep mysql
So for some reason, the safe_mysqld program isn't starting up. Do you see any errors, or can you find an error file named "localhost.err" in /usr/local/mysql/var? If so, 'cat' it to see what it says... -rob.

well right after i posted my last message i thought of doing something unorthodox and run mysql_intall_db again. suddenly the socket works, mysql works and i have no idea why it did.

again thanks for your time and effort.
