    You need to disable secure linux
    I had this same problem when setting upo my phpbb forums a few weeks a go
    I believe it is in "system settings >> security level"
    set that to "low" or "off", etc any try it again

    Code:
    Timeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon.
    Starting of MySQL:                                         [FAILED]

    uninstall the RPMs and run:

    rm -rf /var/lib/mysql /etc/my.cnf

    Then reinstall the RPM. This will start you over from scratch.
