I just installed the latest mysql on my Mandrake 7.0 Linux Thinkpad 390E
and can't seem to get it to start at boot.
After checking the list I found this info about adding a line to my
/bin/sh -c 'cd /usr/local/mysql ; ./bin/safe_mysqld &' no are these
(') really double quotes?
I use the bash shell and I have added the /usr/local/mysql/bin to a PATH
statement in .bashrc which seems to allow me to access mysql commands
in any directory after the server is started. If I don't start the
server first I get the can't connect socket 111 message.
Anyway, I am new to all this and know that the .bashrc, /etc/profile and
rc.d is important but not sure where to place the line to start the
server everytime the computer boots up - I would like this to be global
startup so do I need to add this to my `/etc/my.cnf' file?
Another question I have is about using PHP3 or CGI/PERL I have just
install PHP3 and am using it to enter and access data from Mysql. Are
there any preferences to using PHP3 or DBI CGI-PERL scripts and why?
Are there security issues or other limitations with PHP3??
