comment mysqld_safe version different than mysqld?
Great question golimar, I see two mysql related processes, one for mysqld_safe and another for mysqld. I updated the question as the reply did not fit here. Looks like this is the problem that I somehow have a mysql_safe running for some reason next to mysqld.

Yep, originally I had mysql 5.1, then later with yum I upgraded mysql on my centos to 5.5, but it seems this mysql.sock may have been missed? I am not finding much doucmentation unfortunately on this mysql.sock.

Much appreciated Rolando! Fantastic reply. Wish there was a way to repair that db. Would have liked it to be the same name :)

Thanks, yes this is a correct answer as well. I could only accept one though. +1d this too.

Thanks, yep I did not delete them first. Just wanted to see how mysql behaves. After performing step 3 restarting worked.
