Hi

Just in hope that this will help some of us, I had one of my servers with 4.0 and today stopped working. After noticying the cPanel alert (thanks cPanel, I could have gone mad otherwise trying to figure it out) I upgraded

Upgrade went fine, except that mysql did not start. After cursing the world for a couple of hours this is what solved it

chmod 755 /var/lib/mysql/mysql

service mysql start

Seems that the cPanel upgrade touches that folder rights (they where set to 655) and since I use phpsuexec, I assume I need execution rights on that folder. I guess most will not have this issue, but if you are upgrading and you have phpsuexec enabled... try this.
