MySQL is a joke. My largest table is 200k and the following problems have been plaguing me ever since I adopted it. I use it in production, but that will change from now on.

1. error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)'
 - This happens so often that I fear restarting mysql because I still don't understand what is wrong (and sometimes my 3+ fixes don't work!)

2. Forgetting stored passwords every fortnight>month
 - This has gone from a slight annoyance (not having it automatically filled in when booting up admin tools) to near fatal (because it wasn't stored, scheduled backups failed, losing more then a months worth of production data at an estimated 215,000+ pounds)

3. mysql-server-5.0 5.1.30really5.0.75-0ubuntu10.5 failed to install/upgrade: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
 - These were mysql death throws this morning. I don't know what it means! and I don't care!
