Mike,

make sure that user which starts myqsld has write
permissions to the /var/lib/mysql directory.
Also, at least in version 3.x of mysql, preffered way
of starting it is safe_mysqld.
I hope this helps.

Regards,

searched for mysql.sock, it
is not on the system. How do I go about creating
mysql.sock?
