    mysql start up problem


    Hi, I'm having a problem of starting mySQL.. well I'm actually forgot what did I do a long time ago that mess the mySQL up in my server. Well now when I'm trying to execute this command from the terminal such as: /etc/init.d/mysql start .. instead of starting the terminal give me an error said Can't execute /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe from dir /usr/local/mysql.

    Well I have no clue how to fix it. Is anyone can help me with this problem? Please help ...

    By the way i'm running mysql on redhat 9.0 and mysql version is 3.23.54

    1) are you root
    2) does /usr/local/mysql/bin/safe_mysqld actually exist?

    try starting it another way,
    cd /usr/local/mysql
    ./bin/safe_mysqld --user=mysql (or what ever user mysql runs as on your system)
