    When I reboot my server, MySQL fails to start up. I get the following message in mysqld.log:

    My /tmp directory seems to have the correct permissions:

    However, interestingly when I manually start MySQL (either through SSH via "/etc/init.d/mysqld start" or via cPanel), it comes up without error. So it only seems to fail to start when the system is coming online.

    Anyone know what causes this?
