    Every 10 minutes something curious happens:
    - mysql goes down and is restarted
    - after restart the file /tmp/mysql.sock is linked wrong : "../../var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock" instead of "../var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock"
    - the root password inside ~/.my.cnf changes to some random string
    - the log in "messages" shows:
    Sep 11 06:01:16 myserver pure-ftpd: (?@ [INFO] New connection from
    Sep 11 06:01:16 myserver pure-ftpd: (?@ [INFO] Logout.
    Sep 10 06:01:34 myserver lsb_log_message: MySQL PID file could not be found! failed
    - mysql err file shows nothing but a normal shutdown/restart

    Note the log message comming from pure-ftpd: it's always right before the error message which may suggest a connection between those two events or a process which commands both

    Please give me some points to look for: what process can be the cause, where to look for more info

    check the /etc/chkserv.d/mysql file if it has been updated like the rest.
    then check /etc/init.d/functions to see where it looks at pids if different than where /etc/init.d/mysql puts it?
