http://forums.fedoraforum.org – After a fresh installation of F12, I can't get mysql to run. The problem appears to be caused by no user or group 'mysql'. The error log says: 091203 20:33:27 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql 091203 20:33:27 [ERROR] Fatal error: Can't change to run as user 'mysql' ; Please check that the user exists! 091203 20:33:27 [ERROR] Aborting 091203 20:33:27 [Note] /usr/libexec/mysqld: Shutdown complete 091203 20:33:27 mysqld_safe mysqld from pid file /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid ended 091203 20:34:35 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql 091203 20:34:35 [ERROR] Fatal error: Can't change to run as user 'mysql' ; Please check that the user exists! 091203 20:34:35 [ERROR] Aborting 091203 20:34:35 [Note] /usr/libexec/mysqld: Shutdown complete 091203 20:34:35 mysqld_safe mysqld from pid file /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid ended Both the mysql and test databases are owned by root. The user mysql does not exist in the user list. How do I get the user 'mysql'? Surely not by adding it in manually. W. (HowTos)
