what distro use ?

Your web application dont found the script to start the mysql daemon.

Check if mysql is correctly installed,  this is an examples :

rpm -qa |grep mysql (FC5 installation)

mysql-server-5.0.18-2.1 <---- This is the server
Check if mysql  startup manually without any problems, with service mysqld
start / stop , and login into mysql with mysql client

the mysql log are in /var/log/mysql, look here for someone errors.

If its all ok, check your webmin application.
