I've been away from the list for awhile,so, I hope that I'm not asking a
question that has already been asked and answered. My question is, I
want to add an option on a web page to shutdown and start the mysql
server. I am using the system() function in perl to do this, but, I get
a server error when I execute it from the web. The code runs error-free
from the Unix command line. These are the 2 lines that causes the
system("/usr/local/src/mysql3.21/bin/safe_mysqld -O key_buffer=16m etc..
I think the problem may be that I don't have priviledge to do either
over the internet and because neither of these scripts are in my cgi-bin
directory (mysqladmin and safe_mysqld). How can I fix this?
Also, how can I write some perl code to tell if the Mysql server is
Would someone be kind enough to give me some advice on how to resolve
these problems? I would be most appreciative.
Thanks so much in advance!
