I am trying installing Mysql server using RPM bundle
rpm -i MySQL-server-5.6.16-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
rpm -i MySQL-client-5.6.16-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
next i would like to start the server, i followed the mysql docs:
The server RPM places data under the /var/lib/mysql directory. The RPM also
creates a login account for a user named mysql (if one does not exist) to
use for running the MySQL server, and creates the appropriate entries in
/etc/init.d/ to start the server automatically at boot time. (This means
that if you have performed a previous installation and have made changes to
its startup script, you may want to make a copy of the script so that you
do not lose it when you install a newer RPM.
when i checked /var/lib i found non for mysql,Any idea??
Thank you very much in advance.
