Why mysql don't start in ubuntu server?

gggigi asked:

I edit mysql config for remote connect, I paste there

bind_address = 

After it i tryed to restart (sudo /etc/init.d/mysql restart or start) but I see fail of it in both commands.

in logs i have this:

InnoDB: Unable to lock ./ibdata1, error: 11 InnoDB: Check that you do
not already have another mysqld process InnoDB: using the same InnoDB
data or log files.

I move back bind_address =, but can’t start mysql too.
Why? What I need to do?

My answer:

MySQL is already running. Kill the existing MySQL server processes manually before trying to start it again.
