Contributions [3 Jul 9: Error when I finish install: I have copied mysql. And this is error notify: What exact version of MySQL server, x. I'm running this on a virtual instance and I think it is possible that because the image was saved with MySQL active and running, the pid file is in a weird state that confuses MySQL when a new instance is launched at a later time and MySQL next tries to run and finds a pid file with a value in it.
In any case, I haven't found a work around for this yet. If you are able to provide the information that was originally requested, please do so and change the status of the bug back to "Open".

I should drop all of my databases and rebuild I suspect I have caused InnoDB to modify things so much that now when it starts it reports that it cannot register InnoDB as a storage engine.

We need a solution. Changed the config, so I shutdown the server, and now it won't start up. At least make this message more informative, I have no clue where this pid file is, what I have to do with it, etc Groff The error message about pid is misleading, it's just a consequence of a startup failure. The real reason of the crash is that the new my. You can see this in the error log: Hops this helps, -- JFG [18 Jun Perhaps that'll work for some of you folks having problems as well.
I downloaded mysql 5. I had not changed any settings, or any file ownerships. I still get the same error message when I try to start the database. Segmentation fault And the solution: The problem is that you don't get any clue to what went wrong: If you still have repeatable test case with recent 5.
In many cases this is related to file permissions on Linux or SELinux settings. I see no point to mix all other cases on top of that in one report. No feedback on how to reproduce.
