Ok, when I said reboot the server I was referring to restart the mysql
proceess. I see that my expression was not clear enough :)
And I would prefer not to restart the mysql process because some
services may not have persistent connections. Therefore, if I restart
the server those connections would be lost...
So, any way to add the database without having to restart the mysql process?
