MySQL on CentOS

In case anyone else is struggling like I am… After you install MySQL on CentOS, it doesn’t seem to want to start… You run mysqld and it barfs up an error.

It turns out that it’s because you need to run service mysqld start instead.

(And if you’re looking for how to install GD2 for PHP, and frustrated because a search of “gd2” in yum turns up nothing… That’s because it’s called php-gd, not php-gd2.)
