    Starting mySQL on Slackware 10


    After reading several posts on this and other forums, I still have yet to successfully get the mySQL server up and running. I can only assume it's because I'm looking at installs for RedHat (which most tutorials go through) and not a Slackware specific tutorial. Most things I read have different directories, etc. which I can deal with, but the one I'm reading now says to change permissions on /usr/local/mysql/data, and after searching, there is no data folder under a mysql folder on the entire drive. I know RPM installs do automatic things and have also discovered that the mySQL user is already setup on my install. What I don't know is what comes after mysql_install_db. I'll post commands and error logs though, so maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

    bash-2.05b# /usr/bin/mysqld_safe &
    [1] 2549
    bash-2.05b# Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql
    040625 23:23:36 mysqld ended

    Here is the error file.

    I have also did chown -R mysql /var/lib/mysql and tried running a installation script


    /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation




    NOTE: RUNNING ALL PARTS OF THIS SCRIPT IS RECOMMENDED FOR ALL MySQL
    SERVERS IN PRODUCTION USE! PLEASE READ EACH STEP CAREFULLY!


    In order to log into MySQL to secure it, we'll need the current
    password for the root user. If you've just installed MySQL, and
    you haven't set the root password yet, the password will be blank,
    so you should just press enter here.

    Enter current password for root (enter for none): *entered password*
    ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
    Enter current password for root (enter for none):

    here's what I did

    chown mysql /var/lib/mysql/*
    chown mysql /var/lib/mysql/mysql/*

    then it worked
    Hope it works for you too!

    chown syntax

    for the uber noobs amongst us (present company included):
    This is slackware specific (10.1 in my instance)

    ln -s /var/run/mysql/mysql.sock /tmp/mysql.sock

    ~$:chown mysql /var/lib/mysql/*
    ~$:chown mysql /var/lib/mysql/mysql/*

    the above posts omit the user 'mysql', which should be assumed, but i didn't understand that. hope that helps...

    the mysql.org user submitted comments gave me the first one. thanks to the forums for the chown suggestion.

    cheers!

    you didnt change the group of the files

    you only did a:
    chown -R mysql /var/lib/mysql

    but you need to do a

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

    or

    chgrp -R mysql /var/lib/mysql

    This thread is over 5 years old so it's doubtful that the other posters still need any help with this issue.

    Locking really old thread...
