You need to install mysql-server.  Sounds like mysql is installed which
is the client but not the server.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your help.  Apparently mysqld does not exist on the system. 
Not sure why this is.  Has anyone else run into this issue?

[root at helpdesk sbin]# locate mysqld
/usr/share/doc/mysql-3.23.58/mysqld_error.txt
/usr/share/man/man1/mysqld.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/mysqld_multi.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/mysqldump.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/safe_mysqld.1.gz
/usr/bin/mysqld_multi
/usr/bin/mysqldumpslow
/usr/bin/mysqldump
/usr/include/mysql/mysqld_error.h

[root at helpdesk sbin]# /usr/bin/mysqld_multi
Couldn't find the mysqld binary! Tried: /usr/libexec/mysqld
Couldn't find the mysqladmin binary! Tried: /usr/bin/mysqladmin
Error with an option, see mysqld_multi --help for more info!

Thanks,

Ed
