EDIT: Look at the checkmarked answer comments to get your issue solved.
Whenever I try to start the SQLD service I get MySQL Daemon Failed to Start. I infact tried to “start” the service by doing the following:
service mysqld start
When I type: mysql
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
I know that there should be a mysql.sock file in that directory, so I create one. But the file just auto removes its self and I continue to get the error 2002.
I am also unable to log into PHPMyAdmin due to the error. I can access phpmyadmin page but when logging in I get:
#2002 Cannot log in to the MySQL server
Here is my mysql.log file:

I ran mysql_upgrade and got

The most likely cause for this error is that your mysql server is not running. When you type in
mysql you are executing mysql client.
# sudo service mysql start # mysql
Update (after OP included log in the question; taken from the comments below):
Thanks, saw your log. The log is saying the mysql user doesn’t have proper access rights. I’m assuming your mysql user is mysql(this can be verified in
chown -R mysql:mysql /var/lib/mysql
and try starting
