but you would have still NO PERMISSIONS to that logfile
because it is owned by mysqld and a normal user has
usually no permissions to daemon-logs especially
because /tmp has normally 1777 -> everybody can
write but after create a file only the owner is
allowed to access it
why not using "su" to REALLY switch to root?
