Does mysql 4 require file locking? I'm not talking about in the
database -- I know how to lock and unlock tables for data consistency.
I'm referring to the filesystem that the data lives on.
For reasons too boring to go in to, I have a mysql server and I'm keeping
the database files (i.e., the var directory) on a filesystem that doesn't
support file locking. Is this going to pose a problem?
If this is being sent to the wrong mailing list, please point me to the
Any help will be appreciated!
