031219 16:52:09 Can't start server : Bind on unix socket: Permission denied
031219 16:52:09 Do you already have another mysqld server running on socket: /opt/lampp/var/mysql/mysql.sock ?
031219 16:52:09 Aborting

031219 16:52:09 /opt/lampp/sbin/mysqld: Shutdown Complete

031219 16:52:09 mysqld ended
