How to solve "MySQL is running but PID file could not be found"

If you encounter the error

"MySQL is running but PID file could not be found"

you have to create the directory

var/run/mysql

#mkdir /var/run/mysql

then create the file mysqld.pid

#touch mysqld.pid

and change its owner

#chown mysql:mysql mysqld.pid

this should solve the problem.
