I had a look at your blog - thanks for posting it - but I'm unclear on
the final stage:
# Start the installed server(s).
Well, not much to say here.
I'm sure I'm being silly, but this is the bit that I'm least clear on -
how do you actually start multiple servers and keep them running after
reboots, crashes (if such things could ever occur!), etc?
As you say, mysqld_multi.server has this job but isn't supported on
Debian-based systems. This is where I always get stuck! Whilst I've
always been able to get multiple servers to run manually, that's a world
away from being confident that I can walk away from it and know they'll
stay running, even if the host has an outage and requires a restart, or
