During a recent update using custom build, one of the items was mysql going from 5.1.55 to 5.1.56, not a big update I assumed etc..
Well after mysql was updated it failed to start throwing the following error.
I'm not sure why this line above didn't cause any issues with 5.1.55 and threw 5.1.56 into a frizzy...
however I wanted to mention this in case anyone else run into this issue.
The file in the mysql data folder is gone and mysql just wont behave without it.
Please remove pid file manually, then start mysqld.These files are usually under the mysql data directory.I am the co-founder of Globalme a translation and language technologies company based in Vancouver, BC.Manager of pid-file quit without updating file First verify that this is true. If you do not know where is, you can do “locate my.cnf”.
If mysql server starts fine when you rename my.cnf, it confirms that it is having a problem with your file.
