MySQL Won't Bind to TCP Port 3306?
I've installed mysql-server, mysql-client, and a few other mysql-related
packages. Everything's swell but I've got one question: Why won't mysql bind
to port 3306? I've checked /etc/mysql/my.cnf, /var/log/mysql.log, and
/var/log/mysql/mysql.err but can't find the root-cause.
mysql.log reports that mysql was started and bound to TCP port 0 (I assume
that this means that binding was a failure) but the unix socket
/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock was openend.
I've checked mysqld's config file and the values are correct.
`hostname` returns the machines name (as it appears in /etc/hosts).
I'm able to use the mysql client to log-in to the server (through the
socket, I suppose).
