Re: Fresh install of MySQL 5.6.23 fails to start on CentOS 7.0

Hi Robert,

The value in my.cnf is datadir=/var/lib/mysql. The directory is
initially empty, which I believe is normal; there shouldn't be
anything in there until mysqld is started for the first time (at least
that's the behaviour of 5.6.22, which works fine). After mysqld fails
to start, an empty mysql directory is created.
