http://askubuntu.com – MySQL 5.5 on Ubuntu 10.10 used to work well until yesterday but today whenever I start MySQL using mysqld_safe as root user it shows Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql and then shows pid ended I havent run any updates recently but I used the MySQL administrator to connect to a remote database but MySQL administrator was installed one month ago. I then examined the error file error.log and found this: 111114 23:31:30 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql 111114 23:31:30 [ERROR] Can't find messagefile '/usr/share/errmsg.sys' 111114 23: (HowTos)
