MySQL-related problem

June 18Hits:0

I don't understand what happened. I haven't touched the server in a while, and when I typed the code


service mysqld start

CentOS 6.3 replies with an


MySQL Daemon failed to start.  Starting mysqld: [FAILED]

I looked though the log files, and it gave me this...

I have been searching around Google for a day now, and every single solution I land upon, it didn't help me with my problem.

Additional note...
- typing mysql_upgrade results in this...


Looking for 'mysql' as: mysql  Looking for 'mysqlcheck' as: mysqlcheck  Running 'mysqlcheck with default connection arguments  mysqlcheck: Got error: 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) when trying to connect  FATAL ERROR: Upgrade failed

Another note...
- the latest version of MySQL is version 5.5.28. Is there a way to let CentOS download and install MySQL version 5.5.25* ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.


Can you run


df -h

to check if any of your partitions is full?
Thank you for the reply.
And yes, I can check the partitions, but none of them are full. None are even beyond 20% of usage as of this moment.

Can you post the output of


 ls -la /tmp/

Thanks for the reply, and yes, here it is.
Quite long though...

Your / directory is owned by the user apache and has 700 permissions which is wrong. For me it looks like this:


drwxr-xr-x 22 root  root      4096 Oct  8 17:00 ..

Did you do a chmod and chown on the / directory?
Thanks for the reply, and for your questions, yes, I think I did.
Should I return it to root? If so, what would be the proper code to use?



Okay, so I used


chmod 755 /

and now it displays this...


total 354844
drwxrwxrwx.  8 root       root            4096 Oct 10 11:22 .
drwxr-xr-x.  28 root       root            4096 Oct 10 09:34 ..

Is this okay now?
I still cannot run MySQL...


MySQL Daemon failed to start.
Starting mysqld: [FAILED]

---edit 2---

Okay, I think I have fixed it. MySQL will now start when I type


service mysqld start

I think I should post here the things I did, for future reference?

The first thing I did was reinstall both mysql and mysql-server through yum.
And then, after reinstalling was done, I typed these following codes...


chown -R mysql.mysql /var/lib/mysql


su - mysql

I am not sure if those set of codes really fixed it, but those are the ones I used, and the MySQL Daemon error message is no longer appearing, and MySQL is starting with no problems.
