    Hello all, this is my first post ,i'm a newbie in linux, my problem is that i have a dedicated server, after restarting the server i have this problem when i try to start mysql :

    ..failed or took more than 6s.

    Please take a look at the syslog.

    /usr/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed

    error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)'

    Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' exists!

    Can't make it work, is good to know that i have 2 IPs for my server

    The syslog sais, something like this :
    Also in etc/mysql/my.cnf i have this :

    If i change the user to root :

    user = root , the mysql server starts but second IP still doesn't work properly and the domain isn't working too

    Can anyone teach me what to do ? hope to understand , thanks very very much

    Which distribution are you using?

    Please switch back to user = mysql in your my.cnf.

    What are the outputs of
    ls -la /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
    netstat -tap

    Can you uncomment these two lines in my.cnf and restart MySQL?

    pid-file = /var/run/mysqld/
    socket = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
