patelbhavinpatelbhavin EntrantCurrent User Role Beginner

First of all i am sorry to post new post here again as i see this is right place to post for installation errors.

I am new to percona, till now I have worked on mysql. Just learned about percona two days back and so thought of giving a try to platform. So i tired in my one of the VPS which is on servermania on openVZ.

Details of Installation is as below:

OS: Centos 6.5 x64

I have not installed any thing prior to percona installation. It is clean fresh OS install. Just did upate through yum update. And followed below installation instruction page for percona installation.


Repository get installed without any issue.

Start installation with command "yum install Percona-Server-client-56 Percona-Server-server-56" as per the instruction guide i get below output for installation process.

As installation shows "Complete" but can see some InnoDB and Timestamp errors. Also as installation shows complete so i thought to give try to start server but it gives below error

"ERROR! MySQL (Percona Server) PID file could not be found!
Starting MySQL (Percona Server)... ERROR! The server quit without updating PID file (/var/lib/mysql/"

Request support team here to please help in finding solution of the above problem.
