Did you do a chmod and chown on the / directory?
Thanks for the reply, and for your questions, yes, I think I did.
Should I return it to root? If so, what would be the proper code to use?



Okay, so I used
chmod 755 /
and now it displays this...
total 354844
drwxrwxrwx.  8 root       root            4096 Oct 10 11:22 .
drwxr-xr-x.  28 root       root            4096 Oct 10 09:34 ..
Is this okay now?
I still cannot run MySQL...
MySQL Daemon failed to start.
Starting mysqld: [FAILED]
---edit 2---

Okay, I think I have fixed it. MySQL will now start when I type
service mysqld start
I think I should post here the things I did, for future reference?

The first thing I did was reinstall both mysql and mysql-server through yum.
And then, after reinstalling was done, I typed these following codes...
chown -R mysql.mysql /var/lib/mysql
su - mysql
I am not sure if those set of codes really fixed it, but those are the ones I used, and the MySQL Daemon error message is no longer appearing, and MySQL is starting with no problems.
