I'm on a CentOS machine, did a
yum install php-devel
Flat out saying this
MySQL Daemon failed to start. Starting mysqld: [FAILED]
which couldn't finish since it complained about mysqld.sock
and now mysqld does not start at all, no matter what we do. Can anyone please lend a hand on WHERE should I look?
Ok, we ended up doing a full server restore. Now, seeing as there are backups of all the files inside the /var/lib/mysql, how do I rebuild the mysql databases from those?
