MySQL error /usr/libexec/mysqld: unknown option ‘–skip-bdb’

By | Sample Work | One Comment

MySQL version 5.1.47 failing to start after upgrade?  Here is the brief:

Problem: tail -f /var/log/mysqld.log

/usr/libexec/mysqld: unknown option '--skip-bdb'

After poking around for a quick solution, nobody seemed to release that the bdb dependncy is no longer used in /etc/my.cnf configuration file.

Old my.cnf:


[mysqld]
set-variable=local-infile=0
query-cache-type = 1
query-cache-size = 6M

datadir=/var/lib/mysql
#socket=/usr/libexec/mysqld
socket=/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
user=mysql
# Default to using old password format for compatibility with mysql 3.x
# clients (those using the mysqlclient10 compatibility package).
old_passwords=1

skip-bdb

set-variable = innodb_buffer_pool_size=2M
set-variable = innodb_additional_mem_pool_size=500K
set-variable = innodb_log_buffer_size=500K
set-variable = innodb_thread_concurrency=2
[mysqld_safe]
log-error=/var/log/mysqld.log
pid-file=/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid
skip-bdb

set-variable = innodb_buffer_pool_size=2M
set-variable = innodb_additional_mem_pool_size=500K
set-variable = innodb_log_buffer_size=500K
set-variable = innodb_thread_concurrency=2

New:

[mysqld]
set-variable=local-infile=0
query-cache-type = 1
query-cache-size = 6M

datadir=/var/lib/mysql
#socket=/usr/libexec/mysqld
socket=/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
user=mysql
# Default to using old password format for compatibility with mysql 3.x
# clients (those using the mysqlclient10 compatibility package).
old_passwords=1

set-variable = innodb_buffer_pool_size=2M
set-variable = innodb_additional_mem_pool_size=500K

set-variable = innodb_thread_concurrency=2
[mysqld_safe]
log-error=/var/log/mysqld.log
