heck, how exactly do I do that..? Move the whole mysql dir to a path
dir..? Why is this so, when I followed the install steps from mysql's
site. Hmmmmmm, damn annoying. Cheers.
I followed the below from their install page,
If you run into problems, /please always use *mysqlbug*/ when posting
questions to a MySQL mailing list. Even if the problem isn't a bug,
*mysqlbug* gathers system information that helps others solve your
problem. By not using *mysqlbug*, you lessen the likelihood of getting a
solution to your problem. You can find *mysqlbug* in the |bin| directory
after you unpack the distribution. See Section 184.108.40.206, “How to Report
Bugs or Problems” <http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/bug-reports.html>.
The basic commands you must execute to install and use a MySQL binary
shell> groupadd mysql
shell> useradd -g mysql mysql
shell> cd /usr/local
shell> gunzip < /|/path/to/mysql-VERSION-OS|/.tar.gz | tar xvf -
shell> ln -s /|full-path-to-mysql-VERSION-OS|/ mysql
shell> cd mysql
shell> scripts/mysql_install_db --user=mysql
shell> chown -R root .
shell> chown -R mysql data
shell> chgrp -R mysql .
shell> bin/mysqld_safe --user=mysql &
For versions of MySQL older than 4.0, substitute *bin/safe_mysqld* for
*bin/mysqld_safe* in the final command.
