I am a Unix/Linux noob, so please bear with me.
I installed lighttpd and PHP on MySQL using the instructions in the accepted answer here:
Then I tried to configure my.cnf to allow remote access to MySQL using the instructions here:
When I type
mysqld start or
mysqld stop I get a seemingly never-ending stream of errors. It is too long to paste here, so I will mention a few:
[Note] Plugin 'FEDERATED' is disabled InnoDB: Unable to lock ./ibdata1, error: 11 InnoDB: Check that you do not already have another mysqld process InnoDB: Using the same InnoDB data or log files. InnoDB: Retrying to lock the first data file InnoDB: Unable to lock ./ibdata1, error: 11 . . . InnoDB: Error in opening ./ibdata1 InnoDB: Error number 11 means 'Resource temporarily unavailable'. InnoDB: If you tried to add new data files, and it failed here, you should now edit innodb_data_file_path in my.cnf back to what it was, and remove the new ibdata files InnoDB created in this failed attempt. InnoDB only wrote those files full of zeros, but did not yet use them in any way. But be careful: do not remove old data files which contain your preciious data! [ERROR] Plugin 'InnoDB' init function returned error. [ERROR] Plugin 'InnoDB' registration as a STORAGE ENGINE failed. mysqld: Too many arguments (first extra is 'start'). [ERROR] Aborting
What should I do?
