SQL Question

MySQL Daemon Failed to Start - centos 6

EDIT: Look at the checkmarked answer comments to get your issue solved.

Whenever I try to start the SQLD service I get MySQL Daemon Failed to Start. I infact tried to "start" the service by doing the following:

service mysqld start


When I type: mysql

I get:

ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

I know that there should be a mysql.sock file in that directory, so I create one. But the file just auto removes its self and I continue to get the error 2002.

I am also unable to log into PHPMyAdmin due to the error. I can access phpmyadmin page but when logging in I get:
#2002 Cannot log in to the MySQL server


Here is my mysql.log file:

131201 13:05:07 mysqld_safe mysqld from pid file /var/run/mysqld/ ended

I ran mysql_upgrade and got

Answer Source

The most likely cause for this error is that your mysql server is not running. When you type in mysql you are executing mysql client.


# sudo service mysql start
# mysql

Update (after OP included log in the question; taken from the comments below):

Thanks, saw your log. The log is saying the mysql user doesn't have proper access rights. I'm assuming your mysql user is mysql(this can be verified in /etc/my.cnf, execute

chown -R mysql:mysql /var/lib/mysql

and try starting mysqld again.
