In some cases MySQL will not get restarted even if we run the init script to start/restart it. The issue is due to the basedir variable in /etc/my.cnf file. Inorder to fix this you may need to comment out or remove the basedir directive line from /etc/my.cnf file.
Now restart mysql
# service mysql restart
Now the MySQL service should be up in the server.
