LAMPP Couldn't start MySQL!

Today i've experienced that MySQL of XAMPP 1.7.7 (Linux) couldn't be started. I am using F14 64bit, after several duckduckgo and google finally a light. Here is the how to: 1. chown -Rf myself.mygroup /opt/lampp/var/mysql (**note that your lampp installation path may be vary, to keep it simple i use the default) 2. edit the /opt/lampp/etc/my.cnf [mysqld] user = nobody to user = myself *) modify myself and mygroup to your linux username and group Thats it, run the mysql, /opt/lampp/lampp startmysql and hopefully it will start with any problem.
