http://serverfault.com – I'm having a devil of a time trying to get mysql to start on a Fedora install. Whenever I try to start it i get: [root@server1 log]# service mysqld start Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start mysqld.service Job failed. See system logs and 'systemctl status' for details. Then when I do a systemctl query I get: [root@server1 log]# systemctl status mysqld.service mysqld.service - MySQL database server Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/mysqld.service; enabled) Active: failed since Sat, 18 Aug 2012 21:06:48 -0400; 1min 59s ago Process: 747 ExecStartPre=/usr/libexec/mysqld-prepare-db-dir (HowTos)
