Well, I remember having some simple problem getting mysqld to use its
/tmp/mysql.sock, but I don't see anything special in my vserver.conf or
my.conf (other than bind-address = 18.104.22.168) unless that commented
line "# socket = " was what I had used?
Anyhow, we have it running here in a vserver with an active
/tmp/mysql.sock, so maybe if you strace mysqld when it starts, or try and
run it directly instead of using safe_mysqld if that is what you are
Just some loose thoughts,
