Subject:misleading socket info in INSTALL-SOURCE
View as plain text  
Hi.

The file INSTALL-SOURCE in the mysql distribution contains the
following (line 960):

|    * If you want your sockets located somewhere other than the default
|      location (normally `/tmp' or `/var/run'), use a `configure' command
|      like this:
|           shell> ./configure --with-unix-socket-path=/path/to/socket/dir
|      `/path/to/socket/dir' must be an absolute pathname.

This makes it sound like the argument to --with-unix-socket-path
should be a directory (containing several sockets). But that's not the
case. The argument should give the file name. safe_mysqld removes (or
attempts to) whatever you pass to configure with this option.

Suggested new wording:


    * If you are using UNIX and you want the MySQL socket located somewhere
      other than the default location (normally in the directory `/tmp' or
      `/var/run'), use a `configure' command like this:
           shell> ./configure --with-unix-socket-path=/path/to/socket/file
      `/path/to/socket/file' must be an absolute path.


Regards,
Terry.
