Subject:mysql not starting at boot
View as plain text  
Hi All,

below is my /etc/init.d/mysql content, but, mysql is not starting at 
boot on Fedora3. Have I missed something fundamental.? I need mysql to 
start at boot for snort to connect to it. Currently, snort gives an 
error stating it can't connect. Cheers.

Mark Sargent.

# If you install MySQL on some other places than /usr/local/mysql, then you
# have to do one of the following things for this script to work:
#
# - Run this script from within the MySQL installation directory
# - Create a /etc/my.cnf file with the following information:
#   [mysqld]
#   basedir=<path-to-mysql-installation-directory>
# - Add the above to any other configuration file (for example ~/.my.ini)
#   and copy my_print_defaults to /usr/bin
# - Add the path to the mysql-installation-directory to the basedir variable
#   below.
#
# If you want to affect other MySQL variables, you should make your changes
# in the /etc/my.cnf, ~/.my.cnf or other MySQL configuration files.
