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 /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.
