I edit mysql config for remote connect, I paste there

bind_address = 

After it i tryed to restart (sudo /etc/init.d/mysql restart or start) but I see fail of it in both commands.

in logs i have this:

InnoDB: Unable to lock ./ibdata1, error: 11 InnoDB: Check that you do not already have another mysqld process InnoDB: using the same InnoDB data or log files.

I move back bind_address =, but can't start mysql too. Why? What I need to do?

  • 1) Did it ever work? 2) You are sure there isn't another process running? – pete Jun 29 '15 at 15:30
  • I restart the server and all start work again! So, don't know what it was. – gggigi Jun 29 '15 at 15:33

MySQL is already running. Kill the existing MySQL server processes manually before trying to start it again.
