The Error Log

The error log contains the redirected output from the safe_mysqld script. On Unix, it is a file called hostname.err . On Windows, it is called mysql.err. This file contains an entry for each startup and shutdown of the server, including an entry for every time the server restarted because it died. Critical errors and warnings about tables that need to be checked or repaired also appear here.
