    I've read much about using mysqld_safe rather then mysqld. I, myself, have never been able to get the safe version working, but have no problems with the real version.

    Can some please tell me the difference between the two, why the safe version should be used, and if there's any major security risks associated with the non-safe verions?

    Sorry, I have had just the opposite problem. I can only get the safe version to run...

    You might want to give people more information, like mysql version, the distro you are using and stuff like that to help.
