I am looking for instructions on how to configure mysql on a Linux server
with an already running version. I would need it run on a different
port and all the files to be installed in one location. I don't what
it to interfere with the standard install of mysql. Also I would like
it to install with just the bare minimum required to run one database
with a php program.
Is this all possible. I have read the manual about configuring mysql
but have not figured it out.
