Hello, i cannot set up InnoDB support in MySQL due to "pthread_create returned 11" error . i would like to ask for help and advice here This is done on an OpenVZ VPS, Ubuntu 10.04 & CentOS I have downloaded http://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/MySQL-5.6/mysql-server_5.6.20-1ubuntu12.04_i386.deb-bundle.tar Which has an InnoDB support out-of-the-box. Then, i've tried three different package managers in 3 different distributives (you helped me in swapping between them) in order to install mysql-server-5.6. And only last effort succeeded. Mysql worked with InnoDB support, but only with --skip-grant-tables key. Then i tried to delete database with "rm /var/mysql/db" and mysql_install_database it again. After all operations a stable "pthread_create returned 11" error take place. Different combinations of different distributives and mysql versions (5.5/5.6) have the same behaivour.. Last case I had just tried to update Ubuntu and it failed for me =(. I need only following commands to be executed correctly(ubuntu 10.04, lts): apt-get install update-manager-core do-release-upgrade wget http://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/MySQL-5.6/mysql-server_5.6.20-1ubuntu14.04_i386.deb-bundle.tar tar -xvf mysql-server_5.6.20-1ubuntu14.04_i386.deb-bundle.tar apt-get install <unpacked file name>.deb As a result, mysql database server 5.6 should be deployed on Ubuntu 14.04. doing "mysql -uroot" we can check a value in "show engines;" output. InnoDB support should be YES in it. Also, innoDB support can be checked many other ways.
