Subject:How to execute the "scripts/mysql_install_db --user=mysql"?
View as plain text  
I want to install mysql on Ubuntu, but I don't want to use the "sudo apt-get install mysql-server" command.
  
 So, I download the mysql-5.5.21-linux2.6-i686.tar.gz. and then execute the following command:
 shell> groupadd mysql shell> useradd -r -g mysql mysql shell> cd /usr/local shell> tar zxvf /path/to/mysql-VERSION-OS.tar.gz shell> ln -s full-path-to-mysql-VERSION-OS mysql shell> cd mysql shell> chown -R mysql . shell> chgrp -R mysql . shell> scripts/mysql_install_db --user=mysql When I execute the "scripts/mysql_install_db --user=mysql", I always get the error:chown: changing ownership of `./data': Operation not permitted
Cannot change ownership of the database directories to the 'mysql'
user.  Check that you have the necessary permissions and try again.And when I execute "ls -all":drwxr-xr-x 13 mysql mysql  4096 2012-03-10 14:48 .
