Below is the transcript of the error I get. I would appreciate if
someone would help me with this problem.
[root@www mysql-3.22.32]# scripts/mysql_install_db
To start mysqld at boot time you have to copy support-files/mysql.server
to the right place for your system
PLEASE REMEMBER TO SET A PASSWORD FOR THE MySQL root USER !
This is done with:
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
See the manual for more instructions.
NOTE: If you are upgrading from a MySQL <= 3.22.10 you should run
the /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_fix_privilege_tables. Otherwise you will
able to use the new GRANT command!
Please report any problems with the /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqlbug
