Subject: Installation challenges - mysqld
<I've never installed MySql before and I am having a little trouble with
the installation procedure. I have installed the binaries as described
in the manual for installation and I am able to start mysql through

$mysqld_safe --user mysql &
[root@laptop mysql]# Starting mysqld daemon with databases from
030812 13:24:04 mysqld ended

but you can see that the deamon has "ended" right away. This should not
happen, correct?

Then I go to connect to the server (locally) by entering in a mysqladmin
command to check the version and the output is below:

bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)'
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock'

It does not seem like the deamon is running at all when I go to check
(ps -aux | grep mysql). Any ideas. I am a little new to MySql.

Note: I have tried the latest version of MySQL and still get the same
problems but on a diff computer running the same OS (Linux RH 9.0)>

Hi there I've noticed some very weird things happening with my current MySQL setup on my XP Laptop, a development machine. For a while, I have been trying to get the MySQL cache to work. Despite entering the required lines to "my.ini" (the new my.cnf) through notepad AND MySQL Administrator, the cache does not work. So, today I took a peek at the 'Health' tab in MySQL Administrator.

I've used phpinfo() to confirm settings for mySQL on our host server, and it's not returning accurate info. phpinfo() returns a mySQL client API version of 3.23.54 (uselss for me), where as a SELECT VERSION() query on the mySQL database returns version 5.0.27 (exactly what we need).
