With a good amount of help on this forumn I have been able to Install Mysql server on my home directory

/home/myName/mysql

But whenevr I run the mysqld command to run the server I get the following error
******************
40901 18:27:36  Can't start server: Bind on TCP/IP port: Address already in use
040901 18:27:36  Do you already have another mysqld server running on port: 3306 ?
040901 18:27:36  Aborting

**********************

Is this because of the fact that there is already a mysql server running on my main machine..how should I work around this problem so that I can access the mysql server in my home directory

Please note that I dont have root previalges

Thanks for your time

Actually www.mysql.com will have lots of info you can find for Mysql setting take some time and read their manual, you can download from mysql site.

If you only need local access to your own mysql server you can start it with --skip-networking to prevent it trying to open a remote access port, ie 3306.
