ok I may come across as being pretty stupid here... hope not - but like I said I've got some knowledge gaps. I'm new to MySQL and new to Fedora and especially the command line so bear with me please

I can start mysql from terminal but not mysqld - so I've done that and search shows I have a mysqld.pid in var/run/mysqld

I've tried using the kill `cat /mysql-data-directory/host_name.pid` as per the instructions in the link - I've changed it to kill `cat /mysql-data-directory/host_name.pid`
and I also tried kill `cat /var/run/mysql.pid`

Nothing seems to happen much and if I try going to the next stage I get an output error saying it can't remove the .pid file.

I'm probably missing something... any suggestions as to what?

TIA (again)
