I recently setup a fedora core 1 box with mysql and phpbb. I was having trouble getting phpbb to install until I set a password in mysql, after that phpbb installed fine and everything seemed good.
However, the next time I rebooted the box during the service start mysql failed to start. After some troubleshooting I noticed that mysql actually DID start, but for some reason fedora thought it failed. Also when I shutdown the box it gives failed messages when it tries to turn off mysql.
Anyway, everything is working fine except for these annoying error messages, but it would be nice to get rid of them. Anyone have any ideas?
Here is an example of the "failed" message-
[root@fedorablue root]# service mysqld restart
Stopping MySQL: [ OK ]
Timeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon.
Starting MySQL: [FAILED]
[root@fedorablue root]# mysqladmin --password=************ ping
mysqld is alive
