    Problem installing mysql?

    Hi,

    I went and followed the directions at http://www.fastmysql.com/vbulletin/.../chapter_1.htm. I carefully did exactly as the directions specified.

    When I got to the point of entering this command:

    bin/safe_mysqld --user=mysqlusr &

    I get this response:

    [root@www mysql]# bin/safe_mysqld --user=mysqlusr &
    [1] 10833
    [root@www mysql]# Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /usr/local/mysql/data
    010827 15:02:35 mysqld ended


    [1]+ Done bin/safe_mysqld --user=mysqlusr
    [root@www mysql]#


    I then tried this:

    [root@www mysql]# bin/mysqladmin -u root status
    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' exists!
    [root@www mysql]#


    What seems to be the problem and how can I fix it?

    Thanks in advance,

    Tim
