When I start new transaction in MySQL sometimes I get an error:

(1205) Lock wait timeout exceeded; try restarting transaction

How can I resolve this deadlock in such case? In other words, I want to KILL the transaction which created this deadlock. Can I do this?

that error is NOT a deadlock, but a simple lock.

now, to find the session, I found nothing but some forum entry saying:
<...>
Run mysqladmin debug
Then, the list of locks will be listed in the error log file.
<...>

hope this helps

I want to kill a transaction right from my PHP script. Not manually from console

the simplest would be the restart MySQL.
otherwise, to see all sessions:
