    Unanswered: Can't open privilege tables: Can't find file: './mysql/host.frm' (errno: 13)

    I'm a newbie MYSQL person.
    Linux colxcvs001 2.4.21-9.0.3.ELsmp #1 SMP Tue Apr 20 19:49:13 EDT 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    I'm trying my initial installation of MYSQL mysql-standard-4.0.18-pc-linux-i686

    After I invoke bin/mysqld_safe it fails

    $ tail /var/log/mysqld.log
    040430 7:48:42 InnoDB: Started
    040430 7:48:42 Fatal error: Can't open privilege tables: Can't find file: './mysql/host.frm' (errno: 13)
    040430 7:48:42 Aborting

    040430 7:48:42 InnoDB: Starting shutdown...
    040430 7:48:45 InnoDB: Shutdown completed
    040430 7:48:45 /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld: Shutdown Complete

    040430 07:48:45 mysqld ended
    Is there a site on the WEB where I could go research this error,
    and possibly find potential solutions?
    I am just rather clueless at this point in time as to what I need to do to fix it.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.

    Do you run this as root? If you aren't, I'm guessing that the folder privileges are set wrong where the host.frm ends up. Sorry I'm running windows right now or I'd check the linux file structure to see where that folder is.

    I'm trying to remember that it is in


    but I might be wrong.

    As for web sites to search, I always google error messages, there are almost always folks that have run into an error problem before.
