Subject:Re: multiple mysql installations - Install mysql from source with a prefix
View as plain text  
Hello,

i installed mysql with:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/myprefix/mysql/ && make && make install

(at the point mysql is not running yet)

Next i would like to initialize the DB but get the follwoing error:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
#:/usr/local/myprefix/mysql# bin/mysql_install_db --user=mysql
--basedir=/usr/local/myprefix/mysql/
--datadir=/usr/local/myprefix/mysql/data

/usr/local/myprefix/mysql/data for more information.



----

find /usr/local/myprefix/mysql/data/
/usr/local/myprefix/mysql/data/
/usr/local/myprefix/mysql/data/mysql
/usr/local/myprefix/mysql/data/test

---

And  the folder /var/log/mysql/ does not exist. I dont want it to be
there anyway.


Cheers,
Mario
