    Exclamation Zimbra 4.0.3 Mysql Server is not starting on centos 4.4

    The issue started by stopping after the instalation at the documnet initiation step.
    I tried to find out what is the problem and i found that the mysql server is not running.
    I tried to start mysql server after the install and i failed.

    this is the command is used:
    [zimbra@mail ~]$ Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /opt/zimbra/db/data
    STOPPING server from pid file /opt/zimbra/db/
    061108 13:13:36  mysqld end
    The mysql.log file look like this:
    [zimbra@mail ~]$ tail log/mysqld.log
    061108 13:13:36  mysqld started
    061108 13:13:36 [ERROR] Can't start server: Bind on TCP/IP port: Cannot assign requested address
    061108 13:13:36 [ERROR] Do you already have another mysqld server running on port: 7306 ?
    061108 13:13:36 [ERROR] Aborting
    061108 13:13:36 [Note] /opt/zimbra/mysql/libexec/mysqld: Shutdown complete
    061108 13:13:36  mysqld ended
    [zimbra@mail ~]$
    my netstat output is:
    [root@mail ~]# netstat -antp

    New install. Try killing all the zimbra processes and run it again.

    Default I think i had a network conflict with the named server (named)

    I don't know what is the proplem exactly but once i turn off my name server runnig on the same machine . zimbra started without any issue !!

    it is working fine Now but i will try to install the name server (named) back to check the issue.
