mysqld fails on F16

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I have installed mysql and phpmyadmin via, yum. I get the message #2002 - Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) The server is not responding (or the local server's socket is not correctly configured). The problem though, is with mysql itself. # service mysqld start Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start mysqld.service Job failed. See system logs and 'systemctl status' for details. /var/log/mysql/mysql.log is empty, but I'm unsure where to look next? Any ideas? (HowTos)
