I'm currently having problems with my mySQL server starting on my VPS. It was working fine yesterday. And suddenly this morning I awoke to find nothing but a mySQL server not being able to start. I find that it gives me errors about mysql.sock being an incorrect socket of some sort.

I check where my databases are contained, and the mysql.sock file is still their. I check if the mysql user and group exists, and yet it fails to start. We haven't configured the server since before yesterday, so I don't see how it could take effect today. I'm currently using mySQL 5.0.27 on Fedora Core 6.

Thank you for the help!
