Hi,

I've been trying to get MySQL running on 5.0-Release with no success.

(5.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE #0: Thu Jan 16 22:16:53 GMT 2003
root at hollin.btc.adaptec.com:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386)

Installed MySQL323-server via the ports, when ever i try to run mysql i
receive this problem:

030320 10:20:41  mysqld started
030320 10:20:44  Can't start server : Bind on unix socket: Permission denied
030320 10:20:44  Do you already have another mysqld server running on
socket: /tmp/mysql.sock ?
030320 10:20:44  Aborting

030320 10:20:44  /usr/local/libexec/mysqld: Shutdown Complete

030320 10:20:44  mysqld ended

(mysql isn't currently running)

(I've tried deinstalling and installing several times each without success)
I've had this working perfectly on 4.4 on other machines.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Simon
