So, this is a Centos 6.5 fresh install. After installing Virtualmin I noticed that mysqld doesn't start. It says: Another MySQL daemon already running with the same unix socket.
It is set to /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock The mysql.sock already exists. If I delete it manually, server will start. Else, it will not.
I can't seem to understand why the .sock is not deleted before attempting to start it after a reboot.
Doing a restart of the service, won't help, although it says it is stopping it. [root@atlantis log]# service mysqld restart Stopping mysqld: [ OK ] Another MySQL daemon already running with the same unix socket. Starting mysqld: [FAILED]
The only solution is to manually delete the mysql.sock.
